AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - The American Lung Association’s annual bike ride fundraiser in Maine will once again be held virtually this year.

The 37th annual Trek Across Maine was scheduled for June 18-20.

Now, participants around the world can register, track their own progress, and complete their mileage goals by cycling 60, 120, or 180 miles at their own pace before June 30th.

Since 1985, the event has raised more than $29.5 million for lung health.

This year, all funds from the event will support COVID-19 research.

2021 Trek Across Maine - Update

Our Trek Across Maine staff put the health and well-being of our community first and foremost. We have been closely monitoring the continued spread of the coronavirus and the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine throughout the past year. Based on the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local government officials, and communication with our host facilities, we have decided to host the Trek Across Maine as a virtual event in 2021. We will not be having a physical event on June 18 - 20, but we will offer a virtual Trek Across Maine option, called Cycle Your Way, which you can participate in from now through June 30th.
