The Best Dam Walk/Run in Vermont will be held on Saturday, September 13, 2014 (rain date – 09/14/14). The Half Marathon Walk/Run will start at 8 a.m. and the Open Walk (individuals can walk whatever distance they like) will begin at 10.a.m. The trail through the woods is well marked and relatively flat, so it is suitable to all types of walkers.
Our event takes place on an old railway bed formerly used by the “Hoot, Toot and Whistle” railroad. The trail begins at the southern, or “dam end” of Lake Whitingham and proceeds north along the lake. Half marathon walkers/runners will begin at 8 a.m. at the dam (1) and proceed north, turning around at the 6.55 mile marker (3) and returning to the dam. Those entered in the Open Walk category will begin at 10. a.m. and proceed north for as far as they choose to go and then return. There will be a marker on the trail at the 3.3 mile point.
