A yearly tribute to Muddy, who was part of our Racevermont team from the beginning. A sweet and gentle chocolate lab, who never missed a race, a chance to make someone’s day. Let’s get together for a great family event. Bring Fido too! Muddy wouldn’t want it any other way. A portion of the net proceeds from this run/walk will go to local dog charities. You can choose to run/walk with or without a furry friend. The course is a 4 loop course around the grounds of Vermont Teddy Bear. It is primarily flat, with one short hill. The course is a mixture of pavement and grass. This is a self-timed race with prizes for the top two and six legged runners and walkers. We’ll provide the big, fancy race clock but times will not be recorded. After our award ceremony, grab the family and enjoy a tour at Vermont Teddy Bear. Discount coupons for tours will be given to racers.
