As all of us Vermonters know, we're a little bit rougher and tougher than the rest. In fact, following our resolute reaction to the pillaging Tropical Store Irene, a term was coined: Vermont Strong; and if you're traveling by roadways you're sure to pass numerous vehicles with proclaiming license plates that read "I Am Vermont Strong."
Nearly a year after Irene flooded our community, the folks at Bolton Valley are putting on a 5k race with 100% of the proceeds to benefit Rebuild Waterbury. On September 1st, 2012 the first Run Strong Vermont 5K will be held to any competitors interested. Limited to only the first 300 who sign up, the race will have differing terrain- from groomed trails to gravel to mud to rocks, along 3.1 miles of Bolton Valley's Nordic trails.
The race is scheduled to start at 10AM, with a required registration before 9AM. The cost is $35 per runner and anyone who registers before August 15th is guaranteed to receive a Run Strong VT 5K shirt and "swag bag." A challenging course in a very beautiful setting can be expected.
Come get some exercise for a GREAT cause, and prove to yourself that you truly are VT STRONG.
