• The Vermont 50 Mountain Bike or Ultra Run race registration has been POSTPONED until Monday, June 29 at 7PM ET. Like everyone around the country, the VT50 Race Committee is monitoring in real time the rapidly evolving impacts of coronavirus.

    One of the primary considerations that will drive the decision about whether our race registration and our race go forward in May and September centers around the capacity of our community’s medical resources. 

    Stay Home, Stay Safe

    We will update our race status as the date approaches and as an outcome is determined.

  • At this time, the Vermont 50 Mountain Bike or Ultra Run remains scheduled to run on Sunday, September 27. Like everyone around the country, the VT50 Race Committee is monitoring in real time the rapidly evolving impacts of coronavirus.
    One of the primary considerations that will drive the decision about whether the race goes forward in September centers around the capacity of our community’s medical resources. Given these unprecedented circumstances, the focus of our medical providers must be centered on the needs of the greater community, not just on our race. Therefore, while we hope to hold the race as planned in September, we also are developing a contingency plan for our race.

    We will update our race status as the date approaches and as an outcome is determined.
    We wish you happy trails as you continue your training!

    Thank you, Mike Silverman, Vermont 50 Race Director

  • We would like to share the advice that many groups have been circulating about this virus and how to prevent its spread.

    As with many illnesses, the risk that coronavirus poses to many individuals appears to be low – but by working together and slowing the spread of the flu, other contagious illnesses, and potentially COVID-19, we lessen the risk for those in our community who may be particularly vulnerable. 

    The steps you should consider taking include:

    • Frequently washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. The CDC has some good tips on effective handwashing here: https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/when-how-handwashing.html
    • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
    • Staying home when you are sick.
    • Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue.
    • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces.
