What's so special about the Green Mountain Relay? In a word: Vermont. This course covers 200 miles of New England's most stunning scenery.
The GMR will take you through lush green valleys, up and over rolling hills, on the Lamoille Valley Rails Trail (Vermont's newest rails to trail), past waterfalls, through quaint villages, alongside pastures of grazing cows, and over six covered bridges before finishing with the historic Bennington Memorial on the horizon.
This race is a love letter to spectacular countrysides, bucolic landscapes, and the pure joy of spending time in the great outdoors with your friends.
Route 100, which appears on many "Top 10" lists of America's most scenic roads, is a beautiful, two-lane road lined with maple trees. It passes through narrow valleys, winding its way around cornfields and traveling through small villages.
Runners will experience some of the finest beauty Vermont has to offer: charming towns and villages, working farms with rustic barns and peaceful cow pastures, and roaring waterfalls.
The relay begins 45 minutes from Burlington in the small town of Jeffersonville and finishes in Bennington.
