Description:

What is the TAM Trek?
The TAM Trek is a trail race and fun run to raise funds for the Trail Around Middlebury (TAM). The Middlebury Area Land Trust started building the TAM in 1989 and it now encircles the village of Middlebury, traveling through Cornwall, Weybridge, and New Haven. It links several hundred acres of town land, MALT conserved properties, schools, and other local landmarks.All proceeds from the Annual TAM Trek directly support maintenance of the TAM. Your entry helps ensure this local gem remains well-maintained and available for public use year-round. Race donation for 19-miler and 10K:

$50/person before September 1

$55/person after September 1 and on day-of

Race donation for 2 mile fun run:

$20/person for the fun run

Kids 12 and under are free for all events

All distances start and finish at Wright Park in Middlebury, Vermont. The 10K and 2 mile fun run start at 10:00 am and the courses are entirely on single-track. The 2 mile fun run stays in Wright Park. The 10K course travels through Wright Park and the Gorge Loop, with around 400 feet of elevation gain and several slightly technical sections.

The 19-mile course starts at 8:00 am and follows the entire TAM route around Middlebury. This challenging loop gains and loses over 1,000 feet in elevation over single- and double-track with several technical sections and some short road sections to connect between trails. There will not be traffic control at road crossings, so runners must use caution when traversing road sections and are encouraged to run against traffic or on sidewalks where available (pavement sections total less than 3 miles). This route includes all of the best aspects of trail running in Vermont: from sweeping vistas of the Champlain Valley and Green Mountains to broad fields with iconic Vermont farmland and stretches of evergreen and hardwood forests. The course will be very well-marked and easy to follow, with several aid stations.
