Ready to get Virtual

In order to make this year’s event as interactive as possible, we’ve created a Trek Across Maine Strava Club! Strava is a free application you can download on your smart phone to track your miles as you cycle in support of the American Lung Association.

2020 TREK ACROSS MAINE UPDATES DUE TO COVID-19

Out of an abundance of caution to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the American Lung Association has adjusted plans for the 2020 Trek Across Maine for the safety of our participants, volunteers, staff and partners. We will not be having a physical event on June 19 - 21, but we will offer a virtual Trek Across Maine option which you can participate in from now through June 30th. We hope that you will support our virtual event and stay connected with us. More details below!

Every Mile Counts

Trek Across Maine-Every Mile Counts.jpg The Trek Across Maine will celebrate its 36th anniversary in 2020 with a virtual event. As the largest fundraising event of its kind in the nation for the American Lung Association, the Trek has raised more than $29 million in the past 35 years. This year a portion of the funds raised by the Trek Across Maine are supporting COVID-19 research. It was announced last week that the American Lung Association is launching a $25M initiative to end COVID-19 and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics.

The virtual Trek Across Maine encourages our Trekkers to stay active and enjoy time on their bike (practicing safe social distancing) while supporting the work of the American Lung Association. Please review the details below regarding how you can participate as a Virtual Trekker.

  • Register today as a virtual participant ($15 fee).
    • If you are currently registered for the 2020 Trek, you will automatically be converted to a virtual participant and do not need to register again. If you’d like to adjust your registration to be marked as inactive, please contact TrekAcrossMaine@Lung.org.
  • Virtual trekkers can still earn their commemorative Trek t-shirt, accomplishment medal and commemorative bib number! Simply complete the $250 fundraising minimum by June 30 and your items will be mailed to you. The fundraising minimum has been adjusted for this year only to be sensitive to the current times during this pandemic.
  • Get those miles in! Please remember to practice social distancing while spending time on your bike and working towards achieving your mileage goal of 60, 120 or 180 miles. Daily exercise is key to both lung health and mental health.

Volunteers Make it Happen

The Trek Across Maine would not be possible without the support of our nearly 700 volunteers. Although the physical Trek Across Maine has been adjusted this year, there are still ways that volunteers can support Trekkers and the work of the American Lung Association.

What is the Trek Across Maine?

The Trek Across Maine is a multi-day, multi-route option cycling event starting and ending at the Brunswick Recreation Center at the Brunswick Landing. Overnight stops at Bates College in Lewiston and Colby College in Waterville provide a place to rest and relax after each leg of the Trek. Activities, entertainment and food are all a part of the full Trek experience at each location. The Trek Across Maine also offers a virtual Trek option for those that are looking to participate in a different way!

With close to 650 volunteers each year, the Trek is fully supported in all areas. Volunteers provide support at rest stops and intersections along the route, as cheerleaders and traffic control at the finish line, and as on route support teams.

The American Lung Association provides housing and meals for all cyclists and volunteers during the weekend (as needed). Housing options include: dorm beds, camping (provide your own tent), fieldhouse (provide your own mat) or you may choose to make your own arrangements (hotel, home, friend's house, etc). Shuttle services will be available to some areas hotels if you choose to make your own sleeping arrangements off campus. A complete list of shuttle locations is available here.
