The 33rd Annual Craftsbury Marathon from Greensboro to Craftsbury
February 1, 2014
Join us for the largest nordic ski event in the east! Come challenge yourself Saturday, February 1st, skiing either 25 or 50k on some of the most scenic ski terrain in New England with up to 1000 competitors of all ages.
The 2014 Marathon will run 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 work on the marathon 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.
Whether you choose to compete or to volunteer, we believe you'll find that the marathon is an event with something for everyone! Hope you'll join us!
