September 11, 2020 through September 28th, 2020
The Sprouty supports the Farm-to-School program at the Sharon Elementary School. This year the Sprouty will be VIRTUAL! The race is committed to bringing out community members and serious runners alike as we celebrate good health, local agriculture and the beauty of September in Vermont.
This is a VIRTUAL RACE! How it works:
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?
A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym, or on a track. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. You can also complete the virtual Sprouty 5K or 10K on the regular Sprouty route (see map on the website) but it will not be marked or staffed.

Get a t-shirt and feel good about supporting the farm to school program at Sharon Elementary School.
In early October we will have a t-shirt pick up event. If you are located in a very distant place, we will do our best to mail you your tee-shirt if you can’t make it to our pick up event.

Participants under 18. It is free for all kids under 12 years old to register for any of the races, but they still must register to participate. Minors under 18 must have a parent or guardian's permission to participate. Every participant under 18 must have a parent or guardian electronically sign the waiver for the minor.
