L.L. Bean Trail Running Festival
Chooses Bevin Bros. Souvenir Bells
Seriously, folks? Running 50 miles? Seems like torture to me, but with the wonderful sound of souvenir bells from Bevin Bells to propel you on, hopefully the participants will conquer the challenge. Now in it’s 12th year (the first year with L.L. Bean as the presenting sponsor), the Trail Running Festival is a popular event in Maine, attracting over 2000 participants and spectators. It is described as a two-day extravaganza of trail races, beer drinking, barbeque, potluck salads and desserts, old time music, and fun family events. And for four of the major races, each finisher gets what? A souvenir bell from Bevin Bells when they cross the finish line!
If you survive the gargantuan 50 mile race you get the gargantuan 12LD cowbell; conquer the 50K race (that’s 31 miles! for those keeping track) and you’ll capture one of our hefty 10LD cowbells; the brave souls who run the 25K will get the adorable XO cowbell. And those kids who are energetic enough for the kids race, will be rewarded with a yellow version of the XO cowbell. So, if you’re looking for something to do this Memorial Day weekend, stop by Pineland Farms in Maine, grab some great BBQ and cheer on the runners, or capture a bell of your own by participating! #TrailRunningPineland #BevinBells #ThisIsSerious
