 This 4-miler is a trail race paired with a smoked alewife celebration. The Smolt Bolt is so named because the race takes place when juvenile Atlantic salmon smolt, undergoing anatomical changes, and head out to sea. The race will start at the Machias dike and follow the Downeast Sunrise Trail to the East Machias Aquatic Research Center, where we will be smoking whole alewives (bloaters) at the awards ceremony. All proceeds go to help the Downeast Salmon Federation finish the renovations on our building to include a classroom and a wet lab. The hatchery will be in full operation and open to visitors for tours.

Course Information:
This point-to-point course starts  in downtown Machias and follows the Downeast Sunrise Trail to our East Machias Aquatic Research Center in East Machias. The trail is converted from a decommissioned railroad so it is wide and very flat with a dirt surface. Most of the course is right on the water with views of the salt marsh, tidal waters and blueberry barrens.  The tide will be almost high while runners are on the course.
You can't miss it. Drive to East Machias. The East Machias Aquatic Research Center is the only building in East Machias with a windmill and solar panels. It is visible from US Route 1. Behind Archibald's One-Stop.
Other Info:
Parking will be at the finish, around the East Machias Aquatic Research Center. A shuttle will be provided to the start.
