The Megunticook Trail Festival races are bold, demanding, and stunning! Not sure how to tackle your training? Need a little encouragement along the way? Have questions about the course, what to wear, what to eat, what to expect? I’ve run both the Wicked Tough 10K and the Megunticook 50K and look forward to sharing what I’ve learned with you. Join one of my training groups and you can learn, train, and compete with a community of adventurous runners. You’ll get to the starting line feeling prepared and ready to do your best! All races will be held in Camden, Maine on September 9, 2023.
Wicked Tough 10K
While not an ultramarathon, this 10K is no piece of cake! With over 1600′ of elevation gain, this course will test even the most accomplished runner. The course winds through the Maine woods and climbs to two stunning vistas overlooking the Maine coastline. This 10-week training program is designed for any runner who is ready to take on technical trail running.
New this year, with fewer roots, rocks, and summits than the 10K or 50K, the Halfast 20K is a great opportunity for someone who wants to dip their toes into the world of trail running for the first time or test their speed on a faster 20K course. This 12-week training program is designed for runners currently running a minimum of 3-4 miles, 2-3 days a week.
Brutal. Beautiful. Two words that only begin to describe this event in midcoast Maine. The 50K brings on over 7600′ of elevation gain on trails that are steep and technical. If you’re not going up or down, you’re probably off course! To adequately prepare for the 50K takes 4-5 months and a personalized training plan.
