Craftsbury Marathon 32nd Annual Race Greensboro to Craftsbury
February 2, 2013
Welcome to the largest nordic ski event in the east! Come challenge yourself Saturday, February 2nd, skiing either 25 or 50k of some of the most scenic ski terrain in New England with up to 1000 competitors of all ages.
For 2013 we will run the marathon in the traditional point to point format from Highland Lodge in Greensboro to Craftsbury Common via the Outdoor Center. The past several seasons have been marked by extensive trail work has vastly improved the trail, removing bumps, sharp corners, steep chutes, and poor drainage on the connector. The trail work also allows us to groom the entire course with our team of PistenBullys this year.
No matter whether you choose to compete or volunteer to raise money for your favorite cause, we believe you'll find that the marathon is an event with something for everyone! Hope you'll join us!
