Shelburne Farms 5K

October 11 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

A classic complete with views, history, friendly competition and familiar faces. This is one of our most popular, scenic races in our series and has sold out year after year.  Please do not wait to register. It pains us to have to let people know that they cannot do this race.

The 5K run begins and ends at the Shelburne Farms Coach Barn.  Run past Lake Champlain, through the quaint farm grounds and onto 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. One of our racers recently told us that this is “one of the most beautiful races in America with some of the kindest people in America.”


NEW for 2020 – all racers will be awarded a finisher’s medal.

Directions to Race
From the north: Take Route 7 (Shelburne Road) south until you come to the intersection with Bay Road. Turn right onto Bay Road (if you pass Shelburne Commons on your right, you’ve gone too far to turn onto Bay Road, but you can keep going and follow the “From the south” directions without losing more time.) Follow Bay Road to the stop sign (being careful as you pass under the very narrow railroad bridge). Go straight into Shelburne Farms, stopping at the gatehouse to check in with the Shelburne Farms staff. They will direct you to the Coach Barn.
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).
Racers will be treated to fruit, bagels with cream cheese and water at the finish line.
Top 3 male and top 3 female finishers will be awarded prizes.
Prizes include: A bottle of wine courtesy of Shelburne Vineyard, Cheddar cheese and Vermont Pure Maple Syrup from Dakin Farm, and Vermont maple syrup from Dakin Farm.
