 Races will offer runners a well-maintained, variable terrain, wooded course consisting of primarily single-track trail. While both courses will have some flat terrain and rolling hills, there will be hills and a few sustained climbs. Runners will be rewarded with occasional stunning views of Vermont’s "Slate Valley". 

Runners are encouraged to bring a water bottle to refill at the cupless aid stations set up along the course. A post-race celebration will feature refreshments, live music, awards, a racer raffle, and more! Join us for what is sure to be a fun day in the Vermont woods!
