We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
  • June 13, 2019
    5:15 pm - 6:15 pm

Join us on the second Thursday of June, July, August, September, and October at 5:15pm for a casual trail run on BTLT trails!

These outings will be casual trail runs, not races.  At each location we will designate running loops with a meeting point about 0.75 to 1.0 miles away from the parking place.  We will re-group there.  Those that wish can return to the parking place (having run 1.5 to 2.0 miles).  Others may wish to continue on to tackle other loops.  Most runs cover 3 to 4 miles in total.

Please register for this free event.

General Guidelines:

We plan to meet at 5:15 pm and finish by 6:15 pm.  We will congregate at the meeting point for a few minutes for orientation, but generally we will not wait for “late-arrivers,” unless someone has let us know in advance.

Expect mosquitos and ticks; bring bug spray! No dogs, please!

Each person younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult. 

Each person is responsible for his/her safety. We will have one or two people with cell phones for emergencies. 

Try to car pool if possible.

We need a rough idea of the number that will be attending each week, so use the Facebook page or email to let us know if you will attend.

We plan to run rain or shine.  If thunder/lightning is predicted, we will cancel and post on our Facebook page by 5:00 pm.

Beginners welcome!

Description:

PLEASE NOTE THESE UPDATED DIRECTIONS:

CRNP is located at the Highland Green Development in Topsham. From Route 201 in Topsham, take Route 196 east (Coastal Connector) to the first set of lights. Turn left at the lights onto Highland Green on Village Drive.

After you have entered Highland Green, stay straight for 1.5 miles.  You will see the golf club on your left.  Stay on Evergreen Circle, the winding main village road of Highland Green, for approximately 1 more mile.

Look for Junco Drive on your left.  The parking area for the Ecology Center is straight ahead, on the left. This parking area is for visitors of the Ecology Center only. If you are visiting CRNP to enjoy the trails, please continue on Evergreen Circle approximately 1/3 of a mile past the Ecology Center to Hiker Parking.
You will drive through an area where construction may be taking place but the road will remain passable. After driving down a slight hill, Hiker Parking will be on your left. Please exit the same way you came in, as construction vehicles enter from the opposite direction and there is a gate that is closed daily.
