Dandelion Run

Date: Saturday, May 19, 2018
Time: 9:00 am

The Dandelion Run is a competitive and recreational half marathon on back roads deep in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Don’t let the name fool you. The “Dandy” is a hilly, thigh-burning challenge. Your reward: a run that takes you through farms and forests, on dirt roads through uncut green fields blanketed with millions and millions of dandelions. Start at the Derby Beach House.



Sign up for our Team Challenge. Teams of 3 to 10 runners. Best three times of each team are used to determine the fastest team, with special prizes, bragging rights, and The Big Dandelion Trophy. The run also offers less hilly 10 k, 4 mile, 2 mile and 1 mile options for runners and walkers. Pricing varies depending on the course and how early you register.

All who register by May 1st, will receive a Dandelion Run T Shirt and a completion “woodal.” (a medal made out of cedarwood) and a picnic lunch on us. Walk-ins are allowed but discouraged.
