A yearly tribute to Muddy, who was part of our Racevermont team from the beginning. A sweet and gentle chocolate lab, who never missed a race, a chance to make someone’s day. Let’s get together for a great family event. Bring Fido too! Muddy wouldn’t want it any other way. A portion of the net proceeds from this run/walk will go to local dog charities. You can choose to run/walk with or without a furry friend. This is an out and back course, along the historic Ti-haul trail. This is a self-timed race with prizes for the top two and six legged runners and walkers. We’ll provide the big, fancy race clock but times will not be recorded.
