The RunVermont, A Virtual Adventure

In the summer of 2020 'The RunVermont: Virtual Adventure" challenged you to run across or around the state of Vermont. Over 300 people accepted the challenge of running or walking a route of either 45, 126, 219, or 553 miles -- and 233 completed their challenge route! Adventure 2.0 will feature new routes, new distances, and additional interactive elements to keep you motivated over the summer. All entrants will receive a RunVermont buff and challenge finishers will earn their Finisher's Tech Shirt.

Look for more details this spring with a start date in late May!
