The race begins at the Downeast Sunrise Trail across from Dunkin’ Donuts in Machias, and follows the Trail to the finish line at EMARC. A post-race social will follow the race where refreshments will be served, including whole-smoked alewives, or Bloaters. Race participants can register in advance for $15 in person at EMARC or online at www.mainesalmonrivers.org, registration includes a race t-shirt while supplies last. Registration after May 1st is $20. The post-race social is free to all, though donations are welcome.
