TURNER, Maine — A road race that began Saturday won’t end for some runners until a day later.

Maine’s first 100-mile trail race, the Riverlands 100, started at the Androscoggin Riverlands State Park in Turner and runners had up to 32 hours to finish.

More than 100 people have entered in solo and relay divisions.

Runners had to complete five laps on a 20-mile course.

Race co-director Valerie Abradi tells the Sun Journal newspaper that the trail is a rolling ATV path that has a little of everything: river views of the Androscoggin, dense forest, some rocks and roots — and thanks to recent weather, mud and puddles.

The run is a Trail Monster Running event, and is supported by the Turner Timberland ATV Club.
