The CircumBurke is an annual endurance MTB and Running event, beginning and ending on Kingdom Trails in East Burke Vermont. The route brings riders through a wild and rarely experienced corner of the Northeast Kingdom. The 2012 adventure encourages fun and camaraderie as well as spirited competition. Proceeds from entry fees are invested in trail improvements along the route and other areas in the Kingdom Trails network. This year's event promises a loonger route and some new single track. Timed results as well as finish order will be posted after the event. Last year all finishers received an awesome CircumBurke beer glass made in Vermont, thanks to the generosity of Catamount Glassworks. Registration begins August 1.
