Lucy Mac 5K-9 at Ascutney Mountain

5k9websitebannerb
Mark your calendars for Sunday, October 2, 2016, and start training for the Lucy Mac 5K-9 at Ascutney Mountain!

This year, for the very first time, we’re taking our 5K-9 down the road to the trails at Mount Ascutney in Brownsville, VT. We’re thrilled to be working with Ascutney Outdoors for one of our largest, and healthiest, fundraisers of the year! We’re even more thrilled that our 5K-9 will remain a canine-friendly event.

NEW THIS YEAR:  An adventurous 5K trail run or walk!

Runners and walkers, with or without dogs, will be treated to a scenic Vermont adventure as they race along handcrafted trails located on the western base of Ascutney Mountain.  The 5K trail will lead participants acres fields, over streams, and through the woods, before they finish winding down the ski slopes of Ascutney Mountain.  Fall foliage will be underway come race day and the views from the course are sure to be spectacular.  All levels and all ages are welcome to participate.

For those not quite up to the full 5K Trail Run, we’re also offering a 1-Mile Fun Run (or walk) for people of all ages. This course will be a combination of mostly grass and dirt paths.

ALSO NEW THIS YEAR: A special dog-agility inspired Kids Run!

Our youngest racers will have the option of completing a special Kids Mini-Course, complete with dog agility inspired obstacles! We’ll also have a unique kids craft project, music, and food for all.
