2022 Race Updates

Announcement

March 20, 2022 | Montpelier, Vermont – We are pleased to be able to host an in-person/virtual hybrid event this year, which marks the 39th year of one of Vermont's oldest and largest races.

The safety of our participants, volunteers, spectators, and families remains our number-one priority.

Current Vermont Department of Health COVID-19 prevention guidance focuses on recommending Vermonters consider their own circumstances in deciding what precautions to take – including wearing a mask around others – to protect themselves and people they care about, especially those at higher risk from COVID-19. Vermonters are still strongly urged to be up to date on vaccinations against the virus.

The guidance calls for people who test positive to isolate for five days — even if you are vaccinated or never have symptoms. If you test positive, feel sick or experience symptoms, please stay home and participate in this event virtually.

We are grateful for your support and efforts to protect yourself and others. Your support benefits the programs and events of the Vermont Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, including: Vermont Senior Games; Community Wellness Grants; Worksite Wellness Awards & Conference; Parks Rx; Fit and Healthy Kids and the annual Vermont Corporate Cup Challenge and State Agency Race.

If you have any questions pertaining to this year's race, please do not hesitate to email us at: info@vcccsar.org. As always, thank you for your continued support in one of Vermont's oldest and largest races.
