Join the 20th annual Vermont 50 MT Bike or Ultra Run to ride or run 50 miles of beautiful, but challenging, Vermont back roads and trails. Held in late September, the Vermont 50 has become a favorite race for ultra-runners and mt. bikers alike. The mt. bikers love the technical single-track and challenging climbs. The runners love the back trails and open vistas. And everybody loves the great fall foliage, camaraderie among runners and mt. bikers, abundant aid stations, and the great party at the finish line.

Cost: $125
License: $5 EFTA
Course Description: The registration for this race fills up in less than one hour. See site for registration date. Fufty miles of hilly Vermont trails (75%) and dirt roads (25%) during peak foliage season. Approximately 9,500 vertical feet of climbing. Very little flat riding, mostly climbing and descending. Singlespeeds are very competitive due to the terrain. Temperatures at the start are in the high 20’s most years and climb to the mid 60’s by noon. If there is rain prior to the race this is a VERY muddy ride. Runners start after the riders but most riders can expect to encounter 50K runners who into the MTB course around mile 40. Due to the nature of the terrain many riders will be overtaken by the elite 50 mile runners.
