June 28 is Date for Catamount Half Marathon and 5K Races


Brattleboro, VT—The Catamount Half Marathon, presented by 3 C Race Productions on Sunday, June 28 is Vermont’s newest half marathon, now in its second year and they are taking registrations. 

According to its organizers it will run a very scenic course through rural Vermont crossing both the Dummerston Covered Bridge and the historic Rice Farm Road Bridge in Brattleboro, VT as well as along Route 30’s scenic West River corridor.  The accompanying 5 K race will give family and friends of the half marathoners their chance to compete as well.

In addition to runners, Youth Services is recruiting 20-30 volunteers to staff each of the six water stations and help direct racers on the race course from approximately 7:30 a.m. to noon the day of the event. As a result of manning water stops and handling course marshal duties, twenty percent of all entry fees will go directly to support Youth Services.
