The Vermont 50 MT Bike or Ultra Run also benefits Vermont Adaptive. The Vermont 50 is a 50-mile race on the last Sunday in
September, which you can either run or mt. bike. It is centered at Ascutney Mt. Resort in Brownsville,
VT, and is run over a very different course from the Vermont 100.
The Vermont 50 course starts at Ascutney Mountain Resort in Brownsville, VT. For the first three miles
racers will follow down a gentle downhill on gravel roads. After an easy road climb the course turns
onto snowmobile - ATV trails, which it follows through gentle rolling terrain for the next 3 miles.
Shortly after leaving the ATV trails, the real climbing and descending starts. The course will follow
ATV and jeep trails, single track and roads through the top of the highest hill in Hartland, where
racers will get an incredible view of Vermont and New Hampshire. From about mile 40 to mile 46.5,
racers will have a nice snowmobile trail over rolling, mostly downhill terrain, before hooking onto the
cross country ski trail system at Mt. Ascutney for the last 4 miles.
