We are honored to be able to bring to you the 20th 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.

The Latest on COVID-19 Rules for Our Races

On Monday, June 14, 2021, Governor Scott lifted the mask mandate along with social distancing and any limitations on group gatherings. We will therefore no longer require masks and social distancing at our races. You are more than welcome to wear a mask if you are more comfortable doing so. Also, we will be having a mass start at this race. If you are more comfortable keeping your distance from other runners, you are welcome to hang back and cross the start line shortly after the other racers have gone out. Your start time will be recorded when you cross the start line, so it's ok if you want a minute to cross after everyone else does.


Please park in the field across the street from The Red Mill restaurant at Basin Harbor. There should be a parking attendant to help direct you.
