The VT50 has 50 miles of gorgeous back country trails just waiting for you. The question is, how do you want to tackle this. Are you wicked-nuts-crazy? Then just run the whole thing by yourself. Are you just normal-insane? Mountain bike it with a few friends. Closer to normal? Sign up for the relay run and split the 50 miles into three stages. Oddball with a an equally oddball friend? Tandem Mountain bike it. Anyway you slice it, there will probably be a lost toe nail or two by the end of your day but you’ll have a memory, and not one that many others have – yours will involve an entire day of riding or running, followed by a good old fashioned country cookout with live music, lots of food and a pint of commemoritive maple syrup.

Do you have your kids with you? They can get in on the action as well. There are 1/2 mile and 1 mile running races for them on registration day.

When: 6AM, September 30th, 2012
Where: Ascutney Mountain Resort
Where To Stay: The Ascutney Mountain Resort is the place for you. They have suites with kitchenettes and multiple bedrooms that work great for families and the race starts and ends outside your door.
