With any luck, COVID-19 will not be a factor in the 2021 race. If it is, we will update our COVID-19 policies for the race.
This is definitely one of our racers' favorite races. There are no huge hills and the scenery is beautiful. Beginning and ending in the field of Shelburne Orchard, you will run along a picturesque dirt/gravel road featuring scenic views of Vermont countryside and rural farmland. Run past Charlotte Beach situated on beautiful Lake Champlain just before entering the Holmes Creek Covered Bridge for the first time. The course continues on quiet, rolling hills before arriving at the turnaround. The half marathon and 10K both run through the covered bridge twice. The 5K turns around before reaching the bridge.
This race has a 500 person limit.
