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.
Keep checking the website for links to registration and more. We hope you can join us!
|THE RIPTON RIDGE RUN is an annual fundraiser to benefit the Ripton Elementary School, put on by Friends of Ripton School, Inc. This 31st annual race includes a 5K run, a 10.4K run, and a non-competitive 5K Fun Walk. There is also a short, non-competitive event for young children. All courses start and finish at the Ripton Elementary School. The race courses traverse roads in Ripton and the Green Mountain National Forest and include water stops.|
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.
|This certified marathon and half-marathon begin and end near the house where Clarence H. Demar, 7 time Boston Marathon Winner, once lived. This race is an out and back on the west shore of South Hero and Grand Isle; a land of farms, apple orchards and summer cottages. The terrain is flat to rolling and about half dirt road (hard packed and well maintained). The half marathon course is an out and back that finishes at the Folsom School (same as the full marathon).|
