Traversing the ruggedly beautiful countryside in East Burke, Vermont, the course challenges and delights runners and walkers of all levels. The 5k and 10k races will be run simultaneously, primarily over backroads. There will also be a Kids’ 1/2 Mile Fun Run prior to the main race.
This year the run will take place on Saturday, May 7th instead of Mother’s Day, and will be centered around Kingdom Trails in downtown East Burke. The new location offers a variety of local shops and restaurants to enjoy after the race, making it a great day to spend with mom and the whole family! This year the theme of the race will be “Mom Is My Hero” and we encourage participants to dress as the super heroes they see their mom to be.
Event schedule and times: Registration and check-in begin at 8:30am, kids fun run at 9:30am, 5/10k race at 10am, followed by the Award Ceremony.
