CBHM Weekly Update April 29 #cbhm #cbhm2016 #VT #NH #LebRecreation #VermontTourism #halfmarathons #WoodstockVT

36 days until our 25th Running of CBHM!

For Our New Runners:
This is especially geared to all the new runners of CBHM  so you may plan ahead.

CBHM is Point to Point
Since this is a Point to Point race, the race starts in Pomfret and finishes in Quechee 13.1 miles later. So you'll want to park at the FINISH area not the start!

Race Start
Suicide Six Ski Area, Pomfret Vermont
There is absolutely NO PARKING at the Start area (drop-off's before 7:15 am are OK, follow signs to Suicide Six ski area from Woodstock)

Race Finish
Dewy Field, Quechee Vermont
Racer Parking is "Near" the finish. (Not at the finish) We will bus you back to the morning parking from the finish area or you can walk. (1/4 mile)

So the Morning parking is located off RT 4 at the Quechee Gorge Village.
Please review our MAP page

Carpool, Carpool, Carpool
Parking Area: PLEASE CARPOOL!!!
The race is point-to-point, so runners will be bused to the Start.

Bus Pick up is located between the Quechee Gorge Villa…

Call For-Licensed Massage Therapists for CBHM Finish Line June 5 #cbhm #cbhm2016 #VT #NH #LebRecreation #VermontTourism #halfmarathons #WoodstockVT

This year is the 25th running of CBHM so we are expecting even more runners crossing the finish line.
We want to provide as many massage tables as possible.
Licensed massage therapist will be paid for working from 9 a.m. -12:30 p.m. on Sunday June 5 at Dewey Field (across the street from Strong House Spa, 694 Quechee Main St. Quechee, VT)

The race begins at 8:15 a.m. at Suicide Six Ski Area in Pomfret, VT. There is NO parking at the race start and you wouldn't want to park there anyway because this race is point to point-it starts in Pomfret, VT and ends 13.1 miles later in Quechee VT.
