Can you feel it?
There is a nip in the Vermont Air-that means FALL is coming and what does FALL in Brownsville Vermont bring-The Vermont 50 Mountain Bike or Ultra Run.
After time off for COVID-19, the VT50 is BACK and IN PERSON on the last Saturday of September, September 26.
This is our 28th race and we NEED YOUR HELP!
Our race participants say the BEST things about the VT50 are
A. The Race Course and
B. The Volunteers.
Yup, it’s you folks that make this race so special.
You can SIGN UP online at:
We’ve updated our Volunteer Handbook (there will probably be a few more updates as well) give it a look over when you have a chance.
We want you to know that the Race Committee has implemented quite a few changes to the race because we want you, OUR VOLUNTEERS, to feel safe at our race.
These changes may be viewed on our race HOME PAGE.
If you have ANY questions, please feel free to drop Amy R., our Volunteer Coordinator an email.
As a small THANK YOU for volunteering with us, you’ll get a sweet Race T-shirt and if you volunteer for a few hours or more, a ticket to the post Race BBQ on Sunday the 26th at Ascutney Outdoors-catered by Brownsville Butcher and Pantry.
See You at the Vermont 50!
