GOOD SWEAT
WILLA TELLEKSON-FLASH, MAY 31, 2016

Your gym could have a wall of TVs facing the treadmills and your morning runs might be soundtracked by seriously motivating tunes, but there’s nothing quite as fun (okay yes, and occasionally grueling) as running in an actual race.

Because whether it’s a 5K or an ultramarathon, there’s no denying that buzz you feel from your head to your toes as you step up to the starting line—and the complete euphoria as you cross the finish line. And if it gives you an excuse to dress up as a mermaid, sprint through bubbles, or pretend you’re going to prom? Even better.

Vermont
Covered Bridges Half Marathon, June 5
Running under the covered bridges and along the quaint back roads of scenic Vermont is exactly as picturesque as it sounds.

Thanks Well & Good,
Mike, Bill and the Race Committee

Covered Bridges Half Marathon a Success Despite the Rain

Monday June 6, 2016

What if they held a 13.1-mile road race and nobody showed up? That hasn’t been a problem through 25 years for the Covered Bridges Half Marathon, and it wasn’t an issue — even in steady rain — on Sunday when nearly 1,900 runners completed the route from the Suicide Six Ski Area in Pomfret to the polo field in Quechee.  READ MORE

Racer Check-In and Bib Pick Up-Suicide Six Ski Area Tables Open at 6 a.m.
Race Start: 8:15 a.m.



Racer Check-In and Bib Pick Up-Suicide Six Ski Area

BIB (Number) Pick Up: Racer's Bibs will be given to runners at the Start Area at Suicide Six the morning of the race.


Please note, the Bib will ONLY BE GIVEN TO THE REGISTERED RUNNER. (We have got the system down pretty well so you wait less than 2 minutes to get your bib.)
Timing: We will be using the ChronoTrack "B" Tag Timing System.

The B Tag is attached to the back of your bib, eliminating the fussing with your shoe laces. Racers cross Timing Mats at the Start and Finish to give you both an official "Gun" time as well as the unofficial "Net" time from when you cross the start mats.



You, and your B Tag, must pass over both mat systems (start and finish) in order to receive your "Net" time. If your start time is not recorded, you will only receive your "Gun time".
