8th Annual Middlebury Maple Run – The Sweetest Half

There’s still plenty of time to put some training in so you’re ready to toe the starting line on Sunday, May 1st, at 9 a.m! The 13.1 mile race runs through the center of campus. More than 800 runners head past Freeman International Center, The Chateau, Battell Hall, onto Old Chapel Road, behind CFA and head out to South Street Extension.

Athletes can run the entire distance themselves or team up with a partner to make a two-person relay team. The event offers great swag—a t-shirt, live music on the course by student bands, finishers’ medal, free photo download, and a post-race pancake breakfast.

There’s special pricing for students that never changes: $40/individual or $50/team. Race proceeds are donated to local charities. If you can’t run, come out to Old Chapel and cheer! Register here.
