|This is a fast out-and-back 13.1 mile (half-marathon) that starts out at the Harriman Dam and mostly follows the old Hoot, Toot & Whistle rail bed along the west side of Harriman Reservoir, the largest body of water entirely within Vermont’s borders. The shores of this scenic lake are undeveloped and unbroken. Amazing views abound, especially as you cross the 215 foot high and 1250 foot long dam.|

This annual event is a challenging half and full marathon distance trail run in the heart of the Green Mountains at beautiful Trapp Family Lodge. Fall is the best time to visit Vermont and we think that running through crisp, colorful, fall foliage on the Trapp Lodge trail system is just the way to do it. October is a particularly special time to be in Stowe, winter is just around the corner and Oktoberfest is in full swing in and around town.
