|Smolt Bolt and Bloater Bash:-Off Road|
|Distance: Run 4 Miles|
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.
