The Heart of Vermont Relay: The 100 on 100 Relay is a team-based distance running experience. The event starts early in the morning at the Trapp Family Lodge (Stowe) and most participants finish between 8:30 PM-10:30 PM at Okemo Jackson Gore (Ludlow). The total distance is 100 miles and the course follows scenic route 100 the entire way. Our course displays all the angles Vermont has to offer from small towns and farms, to mountains and lakes. This event serves as a charity fundraiser for Vermont based youth charities that promote active and healthy lifestyles in support of self-esteem development.
