Description of Event: A classic complete with views, history, friendly competition and familiar faces. This is one of our most popular, scenic races on our series and has sold out for many years.  The 5K run begins and ends at the Shelburne Farms Coach Barn.  Run past Lake Champlain, through the quaint farm grounds and on to the trails and fields before making your way past the Inn at Shelburne Farms, former home of William Seward and Lila Vanderbilt Webb, on your way to the finish line back at the Coach Barn.

This race is limited to 175.  Sign up early and be guaranteed a race to talk about for a long time.  It’s an experience you won’t forget.

Directions to Race: From the north:  Take Route 7 (Shelburne Road) south until you come to the intersection with Bay Road.

From the south:  Take Route 7 north to the center of Shelburne Village.  Turn left (at the Mobil Station) onto Harbor Road.  Follow Harbor Road to the stop sign.  Turn left into Shelburne Farms stopping at the gatehouse to check in with the Shelburne Farms staff.  They will direct you to the Coach Barn.

Where to Park: Parking is available in the field at the Coach Barn at Shelburne Farms. Please do not park up near the building, on the roads, or at the far end of the parking lot (the end nearest the Inn).
