This adventure retreat centers around the Sugarloaf Marathon held on Sunday, May 17, 2015. Our group arrives on Friday to relax and experience the natural beauty of the area as well as canoe, zipline, and practice yoga before the race.
Now in its 33rd year, the Sugarloaf Marathon is Maine’s oldest continuously run marathon. The setting for the race is breathtaking as it follows the Maine Scenic Highway - Route 27, winding through the beautiful mountains of Western Maine.
Despite the mountainous surrounding, Sugarloaf's course is widely known as a fast course. The final 16 miles of the course have an elevation loss of 980 feet. It is common for runners to have personal best times on this course. The Sugarloaf Marathon is an official qualifier for the Boston Marathon and USATF certified.
Van/Bus transportation will be provided from Boston at 7:30am on Friday, May 15.
If you are traveling on your own (your cost would be lower), please refer to the directions to Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel. We will be meeting at the Hotel for lunch on Friday. Please plan to arrive by 1pm.
