The 2024 Trek Across Maine

June 14 June 16

THE 40th ANNUAL TREK ACROSS MAINE:
Join the American Lung Association for the 39th annual Trek Across Maine on Father’s Day Weekend – June 14-16, 2024. Choose our traditional 3-day, 180-mile option, or do it on your own virtually! The ride will start and end at Thomas Point Beach & Campground in Brunswick. Overnight stops at Bates College in Lewiston and St. Joseph’s College in Standish 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. This ride is fully supported by volunteers and local and state law enforcement, including support vehicles along the route and three rest stops daily.

VIRTUAL OPTION – for those that can’t get away, but still want to raise money and support the American Lung Association! Record your miles virtually and raise your minimum by June 30, 2024, to earn your commemorative t-shirt and medal!

VOLUNTEER WITH US! We are always looking for volunteers to help us support the Trek Across Maine. We have many volunteer opportunities available. Please contact Becca at 207.624.0308 or Becca.Troast@Lung.org for more information.
