About This Activity

A volley of gunshot will start the race at 8:00 am when a throng of mask-wearing runners hit the streets of St. Albans, Vermont, running the same route a band of Confederate bandits took in October, 1864, after robbing the St. Albans Bank, the Franklin County Bank and First National Bank. The race course is a traditional 13.1 mile half marathon on rolling terrain (a bit of pavement to begin, but mostly gravel for the duration of the course) that begins just outside the first bank looted by the Confederate gang. Runners will head out of downtown St. Albans and onto the historic Rail Trail. At the 6.55 mile marker, the runners turn around and head back to the downtown finish line for food, celebration and awards. The course is USATF Certified and monitored for safety, with multiple water stations and first aid available.

 

This year’s race has moved back to our August date and will start an hour earlier than previous races. We can continue to expect rowdy crowds of costumed onlookers and an encampment of Civil War re-enactors living in beautiful Taylor Park. If you enjoy a bit of history with your run, this is the half for you!
