RaceVermont.com 5K/10K at Basin Harbor

August 18 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Our racers absolutely loved this course for the 17th Annual Basin Harbor 5K/10K so we’re gonna use it again! This course is beautiful! It is gently rolling with very short hills. What’s really great about this course is that the scenery is always changing. You’ll start and end at the Red Mill Restaurant, and you’ll run past the air strip, Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, down by the beach and boat slips, around the harbor, through the woods, and past the golf course. The course is partly paved and partly dirt/gravel. You’re never bored on this run and the scenery changes make the distance seem shorter than it really is. Choose from 5K or 10K. The 10K runners will run the loop twice. Several runners reported PRs at the same race back on June 23. WALKERS are welcome in the 5K division. One well-behaved, leashed dog per racer is also allowed.

We are incredibly fortunate host this race at the Basin Harbor Resort and Boat Club – a spectacular seasonal resort on the shores of Lake Champlain. Please thank the Basin Harbor owners and staff if you see them, and of course, be super respectful of this tranquil resort and its guests while we are visiting.

Following the race, you may enjoy our regular post-race refreshments, or you and your guests could opt to take advantage of several dining opportunities at Basin Harbor:

  • Pick up something to eat at the Harbor Store
  • Enjoy dining at the Ranger Room if you prefer poolside dining
  • or The Red Mill Restaurant (reservations suggested).

Register by Sunday, August 5, 2018 to receive a free commemorative t-shirt.
