AUGUSTA —The 33rd annual Trek Across Maine will be attended by 1,600 participants and 750 volunteers beginning at 7 a.m. Friday, June 16, and concluding at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, June 18.

The three-day, 180-mile cycling tour will start at the mountains of the Sunday River Ski Resort and end at the ocean in Belfast and is expected to raise $1.65 million for the American Lung Association.  The annual event has raised more than $25 million to date.

Cyclists also have the option of riding a two-day, 97-mile route option beginning at Colby College, which was added to the trek last year in order to encourage a broader range of participants, including children as young as 7.

Start time for each day is at 7 a.m. and cyclists are off the routes by 3:30 p.m.  Rest stops are open throughout the day, and photo opportunities are available at the finish line facilities each day.
