We began our run at 6:10 a.m. on June 11th from the trail head on the shore of Sebago Lake, after parking and walking in from Pond Road in Standish.  Each runner carried a hydration pack that held their water and food/nutrition for the day.  There were multiple opportunities for us to refill water from the river while on trail; filters required. We didn't see any public water fountains until the last mile on East End. Would highly recommend bug spray and sunscreen.  The trail offered a good variety of sightseeing and a mix of trail, railbed and road.  The second stretch of railroad bed was rougher going than the first, as advertised on the Sebago to the Sea Trail website.  Signs are small and sometimes far apart, so they can be easy to miss.  Using the Strava route should be helpful to stay on course if you're not familiar with these areas, especially once the trail gets to Westbrook and Portland where you are alternating between trail and road segments more often. All in all the course was fairly flat and not very technical on the trail segments and was a nice tour through some lovely parts of Maine. We arrived at East End Beach at 2:35 p.m.
