Welcome back to Shelburne Farms! This is a classic race limited to only 200 racers which, understandably, sells out year after year. The course is a combination of gravel paths (not loose), wooded and field trails, and dirt roads and it will take you from the Coach Barn, out past a sugar house, beautiful fields, through the woods, and back around passed the Swiss Brown Cow barn and the historic Shelburne Inn. Registration includes a finishers medal. 

T-shirts are available if ordered by September 20, or while supplies last.
