Sunday, Sept 3 | 7 am | Jay, Vermont
The Jay Peak 35.4k Trail Race is a 22 mile race that will push you to your limits but will be rewarded with epic views and the tranquility that only comes from running 20+ miles on a mountain. This will NOT be your easiest 35.4k. If you go into this with the mindset of setting a PR, you will end up on one of our med atvs….and disappointed. Just come out, have fun and enjoy a FREE pizza and beer after while sharing stories with the elite crowd known as “Jay Peak Trail Race Finishers”…aka “one of the toughest runners in the country.”
Walk or run, if you complete this race, you will forever view other trail races as “cute”.
What you get:
- a well deserved beer (if you are over 21)
- Finishers medal
- epic views (if the weather is clear)
- stocked aide stations
- steel quads and blisters
