Fly to Pie – Kingdom Marathon


Fly to Pie 2023

Saturday, October 7, 2023

Run, Bike or Hike – 26.2, 17, 13.5, and 6 miles – Doin’ the dirt through the gut of the Kingdom at the height of Fall Foliage. We start at the NEK International Airport in Coventry (or at the Irasburg Common for the 10 km option) and finish at Parker Pie, West Glover.  All the pizza you can eat, Hill Farmstead Beer on tap, some fine music. One of the toughest, most spectacular marathons east of the Mississippi.   Just the best way to finish up our year.

Special Trophy in the Team Challenge:  Teams of 3 to 10 runners and bikers.  We take the fastest three times in each division.  The Big Pizza Pie Trophy (take home) goes to the winning team.

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 great pizza, great beer, and great music.  6 milers start at Irasburg Common. Shuttle service back to the start is provided by our friends at Jay Peak.
