Over 4,000 vertical feet of climbing in ten miles.
Vermont’s most technical terrain, including sections of the Long Trail.
Limited to 70 participants.
If you think running a basic half-marathon is a pre-requisite for this course, you are mistaken. You should be familiar with mountain running, steep climbs and descents, and negotiating rugged, exposed terrain before considering this race. It will take much longer than a half-marathon (for some a full marathon), and it will be much harder.
The race starts at the base of Stowe Mountain Resort and ascends Mansfield via the Haselton Trail. From there, you’ll link up with various spur trails before descending into Underhill (the other side of Mansfield). After a short run on some more forgiving terrain, you’ll begin your approach back up the grueling Laura Cowles Trail. Once you reach the Long Trail, you’ll link up with some more rugged spur trails before beginning your descent back down the Stowe side via Rimrock and Perry Merrill.
