Welcome to Vermont
On behalf of the Race Committee I’d like to welcome you to Vermont and to our 24th Annual Vermont 50 Race. Our race benefits Vermont Adaptive and we hope you’ll visit their booth at the Vendor Fair to see just where your donations go.
Weather looks great (a little chilly but dry-fingers crossed!)
So safe travels and we’ll see you all soon!
Mike Silverman Race Director
