The Zack’s Place Turkey Trot, a 5K run and walk held on Thanksgiving Day, was first established in 2007, and has become a dependable annual fundraiser ever since. All of the proceeds of the race are dedicated to our operational costs. http://www.zacksplacevt.org/turkey_trot.php
This certified 5K is located on the UVM women’s cross-country course. Great footing (not counting snow or ice) on cinder/paved path and grass. Some single track. Walkers welcome. Suggested donation $5 ($10 per family) and/or a food donation. All proceeds go to the Food Shelf. http://gmaa.net/schedule.php?raceid=TT2017
The timing couldn’t be more perfect to burn off your Thanksgiving calories and bring holiday cheer to everyone within hearing distance. All racers will be provided with jingle bells and a Santa hat. You can’t help but get in the holiday spirit by participating in this race. The course for this race has yet to be determined, but will be posted as soon as possible once it has been decided.

Stowe Derby is one of the oldest & most unique ski races in North America. It started in 1945 as a personal challenge between two amazing skiers: Austrian Sepp Ruschp who was hired to come to America & head the new ski school at Stowe & Erling Strom, world famous mountaineer from Norway. The challenge was the same as it is today: race from top of Mt. Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak, to the historic village of Stowe—on a single pair of skis!

The 5K race is run on a paved loop in picturesque St. Albans. The first mile is fast with a gentle downhill. The second mile features a gradual uphill and the course finishes flat and fast. Apple pies for top finishers and age group winners are always a crowd favorite! Walkers start at the same time and follow the same route. The Walk is not a timed event: however, Mimmos pizzas are raffled for the walkers. This event is a fundraiser.
