Down East Sunrise Trail Relay
The Down East Sunrise Trail Relay, hosted by Crow Athletics, is Maine’s first and only all night team relay! The relay follows the scenic Down East Sunrise Trail, which starts in Ellsworth, known as the Crossroads of Down East Maine, and finishes in Eastport, the Eastern Most City in the USA.
The extremely scenic route is 102.7-miles in length with the first 85-miles run on the multi-use, rails-to-trails corridor connecting Washington Junction to Ayers Junction. The relay route continues on MAP206, another rails-to-trail surface, before crossing US Route 1 in Perry to the paved Sipayik Trail, which follows the ocean’s edge of the Pleasant Point Passamaquoddy Reservation. The final miles are paved along scenic Route 190 before touring the town of Eastport and finishing on the historic working waterfront.
Teams of 4 to 8 runners will run thru the night and into the next day in individual relay legs ranging from just under 4 miles to just over 10 miles and finish at our fabulous seaside post race celebration.
This race benefits the Sunrise Trail Coalition, the nonprofit group that manages and maintains the Down East Sunrise Trail.
