West River Trail Run

South Londonderry: Celebrate National Trail Day by participating in the fourth annual West River Trail Run Saturday, June 4. Known as "11 Miles of Trouble" after the infamous 36 miles of trouble along the West River, the railroad from South Londonderry to Brattleboro, because of its narrow gauge and winding route leading to undependable service. Luckily for trail run participants that means a moderately challenging, beautiful race through various terrain. Woods, waterfalls, and switchbacks will be seen throughout the 11 miles from South Londonderry's Depot to Jamaica State Park. The first 200 individuals to register will receive a T-shirt, goodie bag filled with locally donated products, and free entrance to Jamaica State Park for the day. The race begins at South Londonderry's Depot at 9 a.m., and ends at Jamaica State Park. Register online $45 for single participants for the 11 mile run, $75 for relay teams, $20 for 5K participants. Registration will be open until the day of the race with no guarantee for a t-shirt or goodie bag after May 15th. This annual event supports The Collaborative's community efforts to provide fun, healthy educational programs for youth in the Northshire and Mountain communities. Sponsors and partners include Four Seasons Sotheby's International Reality Manchester & Stratton offices, The Mountain Goat, Real Sports, Elm Counseling Services, Clark's IGA, Cota & Cota, LuxBrush, Southern Vt Tech Rescue Inc, C & J Stoddard, Crystal Rock, Vew-do Balance boards, Friends of the West River Trail, Jamaica State Park, & Ball Mountain/Townsend Lake.
