10K Vermont Run Championship
The Crowley 10K Road Race is the oldest point to point 10K in New England and the RRCA Vermont 10K Masters’ Championships. This year is the 39th anniversary of this popular race. This 10K started 85 years ago, but has run consecutively for the past 38. (Go to History).
The 10K is a beautiful race for runners of all levels, with something for every style of runner. As Bill Rodgers, Olympic runner, so aptly puts it, “This race is a hidden gem with so much history attached to it. It’s a great course for all runners, and I love to run it.” Bill discovered this race four years ago and continues to run it every year. Just imagine a beautiful, cool summer morning, running along the foothills of the majestic Green Mountains. You will lose yourself in the serenity of the lush, green pastures, marble bridges, quaint villages, waterfalls; then, to be awakened by cheering spectators, who cheer you forward to the finish line. What an experience for the lover of the art of running!
The starting line for the 10K is in the quaint New England village of Proctor, Vermont, know as the marble capitol. Runners meet on the Proctor Green next to the Vermont Marble Company and Museum. As the gun signals the start of the race, runners take themselves across the beautiful, white marble bridge, pass along the beautiful countryside, and end crossing the finish line in downtown Rutland.
Join us in the 40th anniversary celebration of the 10K, and help in the fight against cardiovascular disease, our country’s #1 killer.
