Kingdom Trails and the Burke Chamber have partnered with the Dirty 40 Race series to bring you a 45 mile unsanctioned gravel road race starting and ending in East Burke Village, which covers some of the most cold and barren landscapes of Vermont. (also with a challenging section called Cyberia.) This race is a real competition of strength and endurance. What happens in this forested section is legendary and tales of Yeti sightings and maple syrup shots are told and re-told.
