|The theme of the event is “A healthy high for a healthy Ti.” Many of you know all too well the growing concern and urgency around doing something about the substance abuse and opioid overdoses that are prevalent in our communities in the north country. By choosing to be a participant in this remarkable first annual event, you will be taking action to join a community effort to connect participants with substance abuse prevention, treatment and recovery resources and celebrate healthy habits.|
This is an annual event. The half marathon course takes runners through Waterbury, up Perry Hill Road to spectacular “leaf peeper” views, down to a paved out and back, over the scenic Waterbury Community Path, a dirt single track path, and returns through Waterbury. The 5K course goes part way up Perry Hill and then returns to the start. The half marathon is 75% paved, 25% dirt. 5K is entirely paved. Both races start and finish at Pilgrim 5, Waterbury.

The Craftsbury Outdoor Center is excited to present Fall Fest 2018, coming to Craftsbury this October 6th and 7th. Previously known as Oktoberfest, this year’s celebration will include some classic events as well as a few new ones! Mark your calendars now, and join us for a weekend of delicious food, fun races, and spectacular foliage in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.
On Saturday, the 6th of October, the weekend will kick off with the Singletrack Shootout, a mountain biking or running biathlon race featuring the Center’s singletrack trails. Novices and experts, kids and adults are all welcome; novices will have ammo and rifles provided and a shooting clinic will precede the novice race.
On Saturday afternoon the Center will host our second annual Community Open House. This year’s open house will feature clinics in mountain biking and biathlon, opportunities to try cider pressing, and free 45 minute mountain bike rentals. At 2:00 pm at the waterfront, boaters will gather for the inaugural Friends of Great Hosmer Paddling Event, which will include canoe, kayak, and SUP races and tours. Also during the Open House, the Craftsbury Nordic Ski Club (our junior ski program) will be hosting a silent auction to benefit the Kathy Wright Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Following the Open House, Saturday night will bring our autumn-themed Harvest Dinner. The annual dinner features delicious local fare from area farmers, all prepared by the Center’s Vermont Fresh Network dining hall team.
On Sunday, the 7th of October, we’re excited to host a summer Orienteering Race on the Center’s ski trails and singletrack. A beginner’s clinic will precede the mass start event, so all are welcome, even those who have never participated in orienteering before. There will be a short course and a long course version.
