Indoor bathrooms will be available in the City Center Common Space at 89 Main Street, adjacent to Onion River Outdoors.

Please allow extra time to find on-street parking. Due to race insurance requirements and the use of downtown streets, headphones and strollers are not allowed. The races start and finish on Langdon Street. The street will be blocked off to traffic during the race. 

The out-and-back course crosses in front of the Vermont State House and proceeds to the Montpelier Bike Path. The 5k Power Walkers will turn around at the 1.55-mile mark on the course. The 10k runners will proceed to the turnaround on Junction Street. The flat and fast 10k course is roughly half paved and half dirt road.
