Event Description


This 4th annual event honors John Andrews, Eastern Trail founder, mentor and friend. In 2019 nearly 170 runners and walkers participated to help raise money for the Eastern Trail Alliance. John’s vision to create the Eastern Trail started in the early 1990s. He was persistent, but patient, and made tremendous progress in a relatively short amount of time. After starting this amazing effort, John lived on the trail, used the trail, and guided countless others to understand and appreciate this great resource. Sadly, John passed away in February 2017.

Proceeds from this event benefit the Eastern Trail Alliance (ETA), an organization dedicated to building a 65-mile off road transportation and recreation greenway from Kittery to South Portland, Maine and will go directly to support the ETA’s trail development campaigns. With 22 miles currently off road, our goal is to raise awareness and funds to continue John’s vision of filling in the gaps and adding more miles to the off road trail sections.

Registration fee is $25pp.  Complimentary race shirts available for anyone registering before midnight on June 30.
