Charlotte Covered Bridges Half Marathon
|Description of Event:||Years ago, RaceVermont created and hosted the Charlotte Covered Bridges Half Marathon. We were planning to host this race again this year using the same route we used to use; however, Mother Nature had a different idea! One of the bridges used on that course has been closed for some time. It was scheduled to open before September 14, but with all the rain and flooding that we’ve had this spring/summer, the work has been delayed. So instead, we will be using an alternate route which will still take you through a covered bridge twice and along some beautiful country roads. For those of you who have done the Charlotte Covered Bridges race in the past, you might be happy to hear that this new course in not nearly as hilly as the old route. In fact, we’d consider this to be a pretty fast half marathon course! Because of the new route, we are able to accept 100 additional racers. Registration has re-opened and will remain open until this race, once again fills (which we expect to happen rather quickly). Registration is now closed. This race has filled.|
