Two Bold Trail Races In the Camden Hills
The Camden Hills of Maine are where the mountains meet the sea – and you’ll experience both in the only races to take place in the iconic Camden Hills State Park. The Wicked Tough 10 is a 10K race that will test even the most accomplished runner. It’s big brother, the Megunticook 50, is a 50K that is equally formidable and will traverse over 90% of the trails in the park. Both afford a great and intimate taste of this unique area of the country.
Rising 1385 feet above sea level, Mount Megunticook is the second highest mountain (by 175’) along the Atlantic Coast and offers stunning views of Penobscot Bay and out to the open ocean. Both races are among the most challenging in their category but offer the opportunity to experience this unique area is a very special way. In this inaugural event, entries are limited to the first 100 participants for each distance.
