Description

This is our grand finale of half marathons for the year. With all that hard training and racing, here’s your final chance to get that PR you’ve been working towards all season. Beginning at Shelburne Field House (on Athletic Drive), the Half Marathon is a loop course.  You’ll start out running through one of Shelburne’s most popular neighborhoods before heading into the countryside.  After a short jaunt past Shelburne Farms, you’ll progress north to the Shelburne Shipyard where you’ll turn around and head back home (don’t miss the beautiful views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks along the way).  Continue down the Shelburne Bay Path and the historic Ti-Path before returning to Shelburne Field House.

There will be 2 waves for this race: 5K/10K and Half Marathon.

Our half course was recognized in 2014 by Active.com as one of nine of the most scenic Fall half marathon courses in New England.

To celebrate a great racing season and your successes, we’ll gather for some post-race snacks after your race.  Be sure to stick around for the awards ceremony and the product raffle full of great prizes -- but you have to be there to win.

There is a limit of 600 racers for this race and a 3 hour time limit for the half marathon. Race walkers are encouraged to participate in the 5K division only.
