The Stowe Trail Race Series kicks off this summer on Sunday, July 31.
The series, jointly presented by Friends of Stowe Adaptive Sports and The Lamoille County 4-H Foundation, will be held at the three founding sponsors' resort locations – the Stowe Mountain Resort Nordic Ski Center trails, where the Ranch Camp Ramble 5K will take place on July 31; the Macutchan Town Forest Loops, where the Golden Eagle Resort will host the Town Loops 5K on Saturday, Aug. 20; and the Trapp Family Lodge Nordic and Bike Trails, where the third annual Trapp Cabin 10K and 5K Fun Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, Sept. 24.
There are several changes for this year's event. Pre-registration fees for each race have been reduced from $25 to $15 for adults, and a 5K Fun Run/Walk has been added to the Trapp Cabin 10K in an effort to encourage more runners to participate.
Registration on the day of the event is $20 for adults.
All proceeds from the Stowe Trail Race Series benefit Friends of Stowe Adaptive Sports and the Lamoille County 4-H Foundation. Friends of Stowe Adaptive Sports provides scholarships to local athletes with physical and developmental disabilities, allowing them to participate fully in the adaptive winter sports programs at Stowe Mountain Resort.
