“Test Your Nettle” is a shorter, non-competitive event that’ll work your navigation skills & get your feet wet in the sport of adventure racing. On August 4th, we’ll be hosting a beginner friendly event out of the Catamount Outdoor Center in Williston, VT. Teams can navigate on bike and foot for five hours, or start later and just do the trekking portion. This is a great event for new racers, friends and family, younger kids, and anyone who wants to experiment and see what this sport is all about.
We’ll be doing some interesting things to keep the cost really affordable and make it possible for everyone to come. That being said – we’ll still get you off-trail, you will still have plenty of opportunity to get lost, and you’ll have the chance to do some of the most approachable mountain biking we’ve provided in a few years!
Fill up your water bottles, lace up your sneakers and join in the fun at this year’s 10th Annual Zoe’s Race in beautiful Oakledge Park in the south end of Burlington.

Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC is our official 2018 sponsor of the kid’s 1K this year, so there are no fees for kids 17 and under to run or walk the 1K!
Zoe’s Race is a Howard Center fundraiser for people in need of assistance with creating accessible homes for themselves or their loved ones.
Join the fun and help make a difference today!
