FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We are using the course that's been run since 2019, however in 2019 we made a slight change to alleviate traffic and runner congestion in front of Porter Hospital and improve runner safety. At approximately Mile 7.5, runners will head onto a trail that's part of Middlebury College's NCAA XC course. The trail section is slightly more than 1 mile and runners enter South Street Extension just south of EastView retirement community to start the out and back segment. The start and finish line is located in the parking area behind Porter Hospital.
Every finisher will receive a commemorative finisher's medal locally made by Maple Landmark Woodcraft.
Each runner will receive a pair of fun socks by Big Skyline Sock Co.
You must be able to finish at a 13-min./mile pace to officially participate in this event. To ensure the safety of our runners and volunteers and to re-open closed roads, there will be a time cut off. If a runner hasn’t reached the 7 mile mark by 10:30 a.m. (13 min/mile), we cannot guarantee support through the remainder of the course–meaning aid stations will close, you will not be officially timed, and the sweep vehicle will move up to the next runner. Runners may be asked to remove themselves from the course or be picked up by the sweep vehicle.
