Royal River Relay has been Canceled

Regrettably, the time has come for us to officially cancel the Royal River Relay. Like many of you, when we postponed back in the spring we fully anticipated being able to hold an event by late October. Unfortunately, that will not be the case. We are still limited to fewer than 100 people on site at any given time, and we cannot provide you with a quality event given the current circumstances.

At this time, we have three options for those of you who have signed up. You can choose to transfer your registration to Last Man Standing Ultramarathon 2021, request a refund, or you can donate your registration fee to VAST (Veterans Adaptive Sports & Training) at Pinelnd Farms.

Until next time, keep your eyes open for a new trail challenge coming in 2021, as well as virtual racing opportunities, all from Back 40 Events. We thank you for signing up for our event. We'll see you out on the trails in 2021!

-Back 40 Events

Here Are Your Options:

You may choose to transfer your registration to Last Man Standing Ultramarathon 2021. If you select this option, we will contact you with a promo code that will allow you to register at no cost.

You understand that events are expensive, even when canceled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We will donate the whole amount of your registration to VAST (Veterans Adaptive Sports and Training)

You may request a full refund of your registration fee for this event.




Gather up your best buds and form a team of2, 4, or 8 OR do it SOLO. Your group has 24 hours to complete as many laps as you can on the beautiful, scenic, 5.5 mile trail at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine!

Enter your entire team all at once, enter yourself and have your teammates join later, or sign yourself up and we'll add you to a team! 

The race will be staged in the field area beneath the Pineland Farms Market. Racing will begin at noon on Saturday October 17  and continue until noon on Sunday October 18. We will have BBQ and beer for dinner and a pancake breakfast on Sunday morning. Both of these meals will be included with your registration. Vegetarian and non-alocolic options will also be available.

Each team will be provided with a dedicated staging area to set up whatever food, aid, or shelter they require. Solo runners, 2 person teams, and 4 person teams will receive a 12' x 12' space, while 8 person teams will have 24' x 12'. You are welcome to keep whatever you like in this space, but no open flames will be permitted.

Awards will be given to the top three male and female solo runners, as well as the top three male, female, and coed teams in each category: casual and ultra.



Each runner will commemorate the inagural Royal River Relay with the official race t-shirt!
