18-mile (8am) and 6-mile (10am) timed runs, and a 2 mile Family Fun Run (10am)
The 18-mile course starts at Wright Park and follows the entire 18-mile TAM route around Middlebury, ending at Wright Park. This challenging loop gains and loses over 1,000 feet in elevation over single- and double-track with several technical sections and some short road sections to connect between trails. There will not be traffic control at road crossings, so runners must use caution when traversing road sections and are encouraged to run against traffic or on sidewalks where available (pavement sections total less than 3 miles). This route includes all of the best aspects of trail running in Vermont: from sweeping vistas of the Champlain Valley and Green Mountains to broad fields with iconic Vermont farmland and stretches of evergreen and hardwood forests. The course will be very well-marked and easy to follow, with several aid stations stocked with [aid station offerings.]
Wright Park will be open throughout the event and all participants are encouraged to stay after the run to enjoy refreshments, music and beverages from one of Middlebury’s “Tasting Trail” producers. Generous prizes from local sponsors will be awarded to the male and female overall winners of the 18- and 6-mile races.
There will be 5 aid stations around the 18 mile course, and the 6 mile course will go by the Belden Falls aid station twice.
18-miler starts at 8am. ($45/person*)
6-miler and 2-mile fun run start at 10am ($45/person*)
Kids under 13 are free for all events.
