The ShoeFly Trail Running Festival welcomes runners and walkers of all ages, with enjoying the trail environment and its camaraderie overshadowing any natural competition for bragging rights about speed.  Featuring ultras (50K, D2D), one 25K, and multiple 10K, 5K, and 1 Mile trail distances, including a Costume Run and 5K/10K FireFly Torch Run; Live Entertainment, Food, Vendors, and on/off-trail Games; all to showcase the ShoeFly Trail Running Festival as the trail running event you don't want to miss, will remember for moons, and anticipate returning each successive year!  

The ShoeFly Festival takes place at the Old Nordic Center on Dashney Road in East Burke, Vermont.  Entrants (except 1 Mile participants, and AM 5K/10K) receive a ShoeFly Signature Patagonia Long-Sleeve Technical Shirt; all finishers earn a themed memento.
