The Megunticook Mini-Marathon Regatta will be held on Saturday September 8, 2007 on Megunticook Lake in Camden, Maine. Dubbed “one of the best kept secrets around” by Katy Bonin and “great” by Karen Chenausky in separate Independent Rowing News articles, the Mini-Marathon has become a circled date on the calendars of its many repeat racers.
The start is in waves of 5 – 7 rowers grouped by age and sex approximately 30 seconds apart. The 10 mile race threads its competitors down through the narrow passages of the lake’s coves and islands, leading to the motto of the race “Not just a race . . . an adventure.” The rowing conditions are generally well protected. An alternate launch site gives access to a fully protected 3 mile course.
