Join us on Sunday, April 28 for The Trail Running Film Festival 2024, a celebration on film of this wild, wonderful trail running community! The Portland, Maine screening of the 2024 Trail Running Film Festival is hosted and sponsored by the Runaways Run Club at Empire Live.

The mission of the Trail Running Film Fest is to celebrate running as a universal practice, to explore our collective and individual potential, and to pursue our wildest dreams. The Trail Running Film Festival creators accomplish this by documenting the culture of trail running, supporting filmmakers and creatives, and hosting events that bring our community together. TRFF is committed to promoting inclusivity, adventure, wilderness, art, and diversity across the trail and ultra community.

Tickets are now available at UltraSignUp through the provided link!

Ticket sales will benefit the TRFF Filmmaker Fund and local nonprofit Northeast Runners Alliance (NeRA).

Stay tuned for ongoing updates including event details, selected films, participating national and local sponsors, raffle prizes, and more!

Please join us for the 7th Annual Portland Plog Pluck on April 20th, a city wide street clean up project!

If you've never heard of plogging, it's "plucking" trash while "jogging" = plogging! It's a great way to get out into the community and make a visible difference. We've collected over 1,500 pounds of trash to date in partnership with the City of Portland, and local businesses!

We'll provide the trash bags, gloves and handheld trash pickers, you provide the positive vibes and the legs! We'll start at 11am and end around 2pm with drinks afterwards!

Hosted by Runaways Run Club and Austin Street Brewery
