Leaf Peepers Half Marathon and 5K
Despite our optimism and high hopes, it has become clear that the safest thing for our runners and for our community is to cancel this years event. We feel truly disappointed about this and we know that you have been training hard to get ready for this year's race! Unfortunately, we feel it is our duty as a running community to play our part in combating this pandemic.
Peepers Half Marathon has been a destination fall road race in Waterbury VT since 1984. Timed for optimal fall scenery, the course makes a loop through downtown Waterbury and then rolls along the Winooski river through Waterbury and Duxbury, with views of changing mixed hardwood leaves across the Green Mountains. The much loved river road course was changed after Hurricane Irene, but we returned there in 2019. The majority of the Half Marathon course is well maintained dirt road after a few miles of pavement at the start, finishing on a short section of trail along the Cross VT trail. The race finishes on the historic VT state Horseshoe Facility lawn, right back where you started your journey. The 5k course is similar scenery and course, but with about half pavement, half dirt road and finishing over the same scenic section of trail.
