We are honored to be able to bring to you the 19th Annual Basin Harbor 5K  and 10K. You will enjoy this beautiful 5K course laid out on the grounds of the Basin Harbor Resort and Boat Club – a spectacular seasonal resort on the shores of Lake Champlain. The course passes by the lake, the boat docks and the golf course with gorgeous views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks. The course is stunning as it also winds through the woods (on a scenic road through the residential area). It doesn’t get much more scenic than this! The course is not only beautiful, but it is also relatively flat, so prepare yourself for a personal record! 10K runners will be treated to two loops of this course.

Check In

Race bibs and t-shirts will be available at Fleet Feet Sports, 77 Pearl Street, Essex Junction, Vermont on Friday, September 18 from Noon to 6 pm. Because we will no have an awards ceremony and post-race raffle following this race, all raffle prizes will be given away randomly to those who check in at Fleet Feet on Friday before the race. You MUST be registered by 8 am Friday morning to be entered into the raffle. Prizes that are not picked up on Friday will be added to the raffle for our next race (the Shelburne Farms 5K).

Prior to race day, you will receive an email letting you know when your starting time is (we are going to use rolling starts based on race pace/expected finish time). Please do not arrive any earlier than 20-30 minutes ahead of your start time in order to help keep the number of racers standing around to a minimum.
