There are four great routes, offering four very different options to all types of athletes, runners, bikers, and hikers of all ages and all abilities.  A tough, “vista riddled,” and spectacularly beautiful full marathon that will challenge the best marathon runner.  The 13.5 distance  is also the course for the family bike challenge is perfect for kids and parents of all ages.  The 17 mile Iconoclast for something just a little different.  (It’s a great training run for the NYC Marathon)  And, new in 2016, a 6 mile walk, run, or bike from Irasburg Common to Parker Pie.

For one day in October, we fill these dirt roads through “the gut” of The Northeast Kingdom.  Everybody but the 6 milers start at Lakeview Aviation at the Newport Airport in Coventry and heads one way or another to Parker Pie in West Glover, with a great pizza party, great beer, and great music (with Beg Steal or Borrow returning for another year).  6 milers start at Irasburg Common. Shuttle service back to the start is provided by our friends at Jay Peak.


$50 for the run, $35 for the bike, $15 for kids and 6 milers

$60 for a family of four in the Family Bike Challenge
