The Green Mountain Relay 2008

From The Rutland Herald:

The Green Mountain Relay, a 200-mile endurance race, will take place Saturday and Sunday June 21 and 22, taking advantage of the summer solstice. The relay will start in Jeffersonville at the Cambridge Elementary School and wind down through the heart of Vermont and the Green Mountains, on both paved and dirt roads, crossing seven covered bridges and passing through many small, picturesque towns.

Runners will pass through areas in or near Stowe, Waterbury, Waitsfield, Killington, Ludlow, and Manchester on the way to the finish at Mount Anthony Union Middle School in Bennington.

Teams of 12 can compete in men’s, women’s, mixed, open, master’s, ‘House Hash Harriers,’ and high school categories. Each runner will run three legs, averaging 5.6 miles. Longer-distance runners can form a six-person “ultra” team in which each person runs an average of 33.7 miles. There is a limit of 100 teams.

Each team must provide three volunteers to help staff the relay, working at the runner exchanges or as course marshals.

The registration fee until April 30 is $1,080 for 12-person teams, $600 for ultra teams, and $300 for high school teams. Late registration starts May 1 and closes May 31.
