Great Pond Mountain Conservation Trust (GPMCT) and Frenchman Bay Conservancy (FBC) are combining trail races in 2013 to create the Downeast Double Trouble Trail Race Challenge. These races will be held one weekend apart in 2013, with the GPMCT Wildlands Trail Race Sunday, October 27 and the FBC Autumn Trail Race on Sunday, November 3. Participants who run both races are eligible for a special prize. The GPMCT Wildlands Trail Race in Orland’s scenic Great Pond Mountain Wildlands is a 6.3-mile course on dirt roads and single track, over roots, rocks and mud, up and down hills, over small streams, past lovely views and munching moose. Total climb is approximately 1,200 gut-or-calf-busting feet. For more info on both races or to pre-register, click here. (That’s PreRace.com)
