3 years ago I did this race and they cancelled after a few hours because it got hot. In the summer…Seriously. WTH? After 3 years of being angry about it I signed up again, mostly because it was the only Vermont race I could make work with my schedule and as we’re waiting for the start they announce they need to evacuate the park, because rain is coming. Are you serious? The rain came and went and we started about an hour late so it was hot, but surprisingly they didn’t cancel again, but all those angry feelings came back. Only do this race if you want to go to Burlington for no reason, and treat the race as a happy accident IF it happens. This race is utterly ridiculous.

Small town race, very accommodating course and race director, volunteers are the friendliest people on the planet, showers after, race day packet pickup, freakin’ blueberry pancakes at mile 25! Only potential concerns to some folks would be the elevation (around a mile high) and the inclines/declines (no real hills to speak of, but because the course is a former railroad line there can be miles of slight uphill, followed by miles of slight downhill) I’m going to try to come back for the 100 next year. I set a new personal best for the 50 miler, sub10!
