Join us as hits the trail in the 3rd Annual Sugarworks Trail Run at Shelburne Sugarworks and Four Season Outdoor Center. Choose to run or run/walk the 5K, or run the 10K (two loops of the 5K). The course is rolling - mostly through the woods on the beautiful trail system that Shelburne Sugarworks, but there is also a portion around a pond and also through the fields surrounded by Queen Anne's lace. There are no huge uphill runs, but it's not totally flat. Racers can present their race bib at Shelburne Sugarworks for a free hand crafted maple ice cream cone. Flavors are to be determined on race day.

Where to Park

There will be NO parking at Shelburne Sugarworks in order to allow for plenty of space around racers and their fans. Instead, there will be ample parking just east of Shelburne Sugarworks at the practice fields for the Buccaneers. Look for the Shelburne Sugarworks sign at the entrance to the field. It's only a 4-minute walk to the sugarhouse from this parking lot, but please be careful walking. Walk as close to the edge of the road and stay alert. Directions to the race can be found near the bottom of this page.

Buccaneers' Practice Field


First, second, and third place overall male and female winners of both the 5K and the 10K trail runs will each win a prize. These winners are disqualified from winning an age group award.

Age group winners will receive an "Age Group Winner" pint glass.


Immediately following your finish, present your race bib to Shelburne Sugarworks for a free, DELICIOUS, hand crafted maple ice cream cone. They'll punch the bib and return it to you. You may want to bring some extra money if you'd like to purchase syrup or any of their other maple goodies (or a pint of ice cream to take home).

Refund Policy

Should this race get cancelled due to extreme weather or by order of the governor or other government official, you will have the option to either defer your registration to next year's Sugarworks Trail Run, or transfer to another race of equal or lesser distance.
