Racer Testimonial

I just want to thank you for your wonderful organisation. We were in your area my wife and I in a lovely week-end, we are from Quebec. I saw your event on running in the USA and I decided at the last minute tu run a last race this year. WOW and WOW again. From my registration at 6h45am to 12h00, everything was perfect. People were friendly everywhere. The course was incredible, not an easy one but the end of the half marathon in the forest was magic.

Thanks again for this wonderful , I definitely will try to be there next year

Rayne!

I’m so appreciative of you and the Race Series that you’ve so beautifully built!
What a gift you are to this community: giving all of us special opportunities to get fit, be fit, have fun, and share some healthy exercise times with like minded! To top it off: in beautiful places!
Sunday at Shelburne Farms was the best! Your race crew is amazing, the race course support was amazing, the shirts are beautiful, and you are SO positive and so encouraging! I heard you say “Have fun!” at least 3x!
As I was cooling down, I said hello to another participant who was clearly in awe of Shelburne Farms as I was. She was looking out at Lake Champlain and the mountains and said to me:”Runner’s World should be here. It really does not get more special than this event.”
Amen, and thank you!
Kind regards and love to you!

Sponsor Testimonial

My name is Jared Jabaut and I am the owner of the Jared Jabaut agency with nationwide insurance in Shelburne and Saint Albans Vermont. This year we have had a wonderful experience working with a great partner in race Vermont. For my agency the partnership with race Vermont has not only garnished a tremendous amount of exposure in the community but it also provided us with a wonderful branding opportunity that to me is second to none. I feel that the flexibility that race Vermont has provided us in being able to tell taylor our race to how we wanted it to reflect our brand at my agency was something that I don’t think we would be able to experience anywhere else. I do believe any business that is looking to promote its people, it’s product or itself can find tremendous benefit in partnering with Race Vermont. Rayne and his staff do a wonderful job in promoting and executing on race day and everything leading up to it. I am very pleased to give the highest recommendation to Race Vermont for anyone looking to be a sponsor.

TNT Blast Away Cancer (2015)

The TNT BAC 10K was my first race up in Shelburne…it was well worth the trip from downstate and I will be back! Well organized, fun, challenging (for me at least), and a great bar glass to celebrate my respectable finish! I hope to join RaceVermont for a few more events before the running season ends in December.

Racevermont Half Marathon (2014)

Rayne,
Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to you and your many volunteers for all of your efforts yesterday at the Shelburne half. This was my fourth year running it and it just keeps getting better! You guys did a wonderful job in less than ideal conditions to make sure we were all safe and taken care of. My hats are off to those who had to stand outside in the cold and wind to volunteer. They truly had a much more difficult job than we did! I look forward to next year.

Racevermont Spring Half Marathon (2013)

“Rayne,

Thanks so much for all you do to make races possible and safe for so many people. The Race Vermont spring 1/2 marathon was such a wonderful event. I absolutely loved the course, the people, the food, the weather and the t-shirts. I can only imagine what goes on behind the scenes but I know a big thanks should go out to you and everyone involved.

KUDOS to all.”

Racevermont Fall 2012 Half Marathon

Thank you for another great event this year. I love this race, the course is challenging but beautiful, I especially love the part near the turnaround point at 8 miles, the view is breathtaking. I’ve done this race the past 3 years and enjoyed it every time. I LOVE that you added a really cool medal this year! I also wanted to mention that having access to showers after the race is VERY appreciated. I would not see myself going back to Canada without it. I hope you will be able to keep having access to the Fields facilities for years to come.

Thanks again for such a great event, I will be back.”
Dr. Sonia Melancon, PhD, MCIC

“Thanks for a great race on Sunday. It was an interesting and varied course, lots of great volunteers and one of the best post-race meals ever! The fieldhouse alone was worth it.  Looking forward to future Racevermont events.”

Sprint Triathlon 1 – June 30, 2012

I just wanted to drop a note to you. We were on vacation from Florida and I raced in the June 30th event. My wife and I travel quite a bit to compete in races. You really never know what to expect when you go to a race. I was very pleased with all aspects of the race. For a small race, the organization was great and the volunteers were eager to help. It was a great experience. Thanks for everything.

RaceVermont.com Half Marathon November 6, 2011

Just wanted to thank you and your crew for a great event yesterday. The course was beautiful, the course marshalls and all the volunteers were friendly and helpful, and the shirts are fantastic!.. It made my first half marathon a great overall experience. I will certainly plan on returning next year if you sponsor it again!”  — Kyle Bouchard

… Nice job with the race yesterday.  It was a great day, the race was well organized with lots of volunteers to get everything going on time & great help at the water stations.  The race has really taken off since 5 or 6 years ago.  There must be 4 or 5 times time the number of runners since then. I really think this is one of the best half marathon in Vermont. Thanks.” — Peter Snell


RaceVermont.com Half Marathon November 7, 2010

… wanted to say THANKS for a great event!  This was my first half-marathon and I couldn’t ask for anything better.  At first I thought the lack of wearing an iPod would be a negative, but without it I focused on the beautiful scenery and probably appreciated the views even more without background music!  The weather was great for the day, the volunteers enthusiastic and supportive and, as I mentioned, the course was just breathtaking.  Thanks for making my first “half” a super-memorable and enjoyable event!

 Rayne,
Thanks for putting on a nice race yesterday!   Loved the views, and the topography was interesting – I’m glad Shelburne Farms let you use their land – it made it a really nice event.
Thanks again!

Hello Ute,My fiance and I would like to thank you and all the organizers at RaceVermont.com for the wonderful event that is the fall half marathon. We drove from Montreal to run in this race and we do not regret our decision.  

The course is beautiful and the event is well run. It was very challenging, especially that 1 mile long hill at Mile 10!! But the cows cheering on us was priceless! That was our 17th half-marathon and we’ve done bigger races that were not as fun as this one. The post-race food was simply delicious and we really appreciated having access to shower facilities after the race. Really a wonderful event! 

So again a big thank you to all the organizers of this event and the volunteers.

Be well,

Shelburne Farms 5K 2009 

Thank you for organizing a wonderful event.  It was the perfect start of our day.  My husband and I came to Vermont for Parents Weekend at UVM and are so happy we came across your race. 

We hope to introduce the beautiful educational site of Shelburne Farms to our family in the future. 

Hope to be back next year.

Kind regards,  Elizabeth Herkenham

Burlington Triathlon 2009 

Hi Rayne,
Just a quick note to thank you all for organizing such a spectacular and memorable event. The level of effort and attention to detail were evident in every aspect of the race. Hope to see you again next year.

Todd Jewett


Hey Rayne,
Thanks for the encouragement.  It was a great first triathalon experience for me, especially for only haphazardly training for 3 weeks prior.  Folks were supportive, people were courteous and friendly, and it felt great!  The course was well marked and well supported.  Would have liked one more water station on the run.  The volunteers were great, and the course itself was
good. Thanks for all the raffle goodies and nourishment after the race as well. I will see you at another event 🙂

I hope that your “orange cone rule” was followed diligently and that you will host the race again next year.

Kind regards,

As I had to leave shortly after crossing the finish line yesterday, I wanted to send you and your volunteers a big thank you for organizing sand running such a fun race.  I just moved to Vermont and was thrilled to learn of this event.  It was a great opportunity to meet people in the tri community here.  I was also impressed by how quickly your team published the results. Thank you so much for putting on the Burlington Triathlon. We all had a wonderful time!!!  Thank you for all your support and for supporting the American Cancer Society….and thank you for putting my video link up.  You are the best.   

 Lots of love to all of you and Thanks for all you do and for all your staff does for all of us……xoxo Karen 

 


Congrats on a fantastic day yesterday. Such a terrific and well run event! It was so clear how much time and effort and energy you all had put into it, and to see it come together was spectcular. The looks on the racers faces as they crossed the finish line was truly amazing…and a tribute to the caliber of event that you ran!
