The course is rolling - mostly through the woods on the beautiful trail system that Shelburne Sugarworks, but there is also a portion around a pond and also through the fields surrounded by Queen Anne's lace. There are no huge uphill runs, but it's not totally flat. Racers can present their race bib at Shelburne Sugarworks for a free hand crafted maple ice cream cone. Flavors are to be determined on race day. There is a 2-hour limit for this race.

Instead, there will be ample parking just east of Shelburne Sugarworks at the practice fields for the Buccaneers. Look for the Shelburne Sugarworks sign at the entrance to the field. It's only a 4-minute walk to the sugarhouse from this parking lot, but please be careful walking. Walk as close to the edge of the road and stay alert.
