COURSE: Course Map
INDIVIDUAL RUNNERS start with a 1 mile out and back on Sodom Pond Rd, then head up Adamant Rd which becomes Singleton Rd. At the end, bear left onto N Calais Rd. In 2.5 miles, turn L onto #10 Pond Rd, which becomes Cranberry Meadow Rd. The turnaround is just before Cranberry Meadow intersects County Rd. The course returns the same way, however the Sodom Pond out/back is not repeated.

THE RELAY. The relay exchange is near mile 13 by Nelson Pond. Relay participants are responsible for their own transportation or carpooling to the exchange point.

NOTE: This is a scenic but hilly dirt road course. It is designed as a beautiful, well supported, last long training run for Vermont City Marathon; however those racing the marathon are encouraged to pace themselves slower than marathon pace since this course is more difficult than the marathon.
