Please select the event you are doing:
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.
