Have you been hearing about Slate Valley Trails? Well, now is the time to check out Slate Valley Trails (SVT) by participating in our inaugural trail run race and fundraiser! Trail runners can choose from an 8k and half-marathon, which will be entirely on singletrack and double-track trails! There will be a kids fun run too!
Races will offer runners a well-maintained, variable terrain, wooded course consisting of primarily single-track trail. While both courses will have some flat terrain and rolling hills, there will be hills and a few sustained climbs. Runners will be rewarded with occasional stunning views of Vermont’s “Slate Valley”.
Runners are encouraged to bring a water bottle to refill at the cupless aid stations set up along the course. A post-race celebration will feature refreshments, live music, awards, a racer raffle, and more! Join us for what is sure to be a fun day in the Vermont woods!
