Trek Across Maine will Happen Virtually This Year
According to WMTW, the 36th annual Trek Across Maine has been cancelled. Well, the physical portion of it anyway.
Riders are still encouraged to ride and track their miles through various fitness apps through June 30th. Also, the minimum amount to fund raise/register has been lowered from $500 to $250 as the American Lung Association still hasn't reached half of their $1.3 million goal.
Last year's Trek Across Maine saw about 2,000 riders. For more information on this year's Trek, click here.
