Greetings from the Vergennes Day race committee. On Saturday Aug. 25th we invite you to join us at the 31st annual Vergennes Day race. Please bring your entire family and join us for our annual Little City Race. We have a 5K run and walk that takes you through our city streets and finishes at the City Green.
A great opportunity for friends and family to get out and participate in a fun filled and healthy event. We also have a 10K run for those more serious runners, which has a challenging hill climb on Route 66 at the 3 mile mark. The view on the return to Vergennes is beyond spectacular and well worth the hill climb. Both courses have been wheel measured, so you can feel confident our distances are accurate. You can see color race course maps of both courses by checking out our on line registration site, www.runvermont.org/littlecity
. There will be awards and raffle prizes at the conclusion of our race for all three events. We’re hoping for a large turnout of runners and walkers this year, so we highly recommend pre-registering on line. Did you know that you can save $ 5 by registering on line? For those folks that don’t like to pre-register on line, you can still fill out a registration form and register via mail or the morning of the race. A copy of the form can be downloaded from this site. Race Day Registration starts at 8am. on Sat. the 25th at the Steven’s house adjacent to the City Green in Vergennes. All races start at 9am. If you’re planning to register the day of the race, please help us out by registering no later than 8:30am. Also, if you want a race t-shirt, I highly recommend you sign up on line at www.runvermont.org/littlecity. There will be a very limited supply of shirts.
This year our race will help benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes. Help support our Boys & Girls Club by participating in our race. This nonprofit club plays a vital role in providing a safe place for our youth. They provide after school and summer programs and activities that engage our youth in their community. They help foster academic success and encourage healthy lifestyle choices. Help us support this great organization by donating on line at our registration site www.runvermont.org/littlecity
, on the club’s own site at www.bgcvergennes.org
or you can send a check made payable to the Vergennes Boy’s & Girls Club P.O. Box 356, Vergennes, VT 05491.
We hope to see you on Vergennes Day!
