Trail running:

“It’s a secret no longer.  Trail running is the perfect exercise for mind and body. If you’re new to running or a seasoned competitive racer, trail running builds strength, endurance, core muscles and balance while alleviating stress.  Join us for a trail run along the beautiful Ranch Brook in the historic Ranch Valley, birthplace of skiing in Stowe.  With moderate hills, we’ll run from three to five miles in the Mt. Mansfield State Forest.  It’s a great way to start your day.  If you dare, we invite you to have a dip in the swimming hole when you’re done.  Brrrrr! “

Meet at Sunrise Mountain Guides.

Duration;  1 to 1 1/2  hours
