Trapp Cabin Trail Races:
5 K, 10 K and half marathon

Sunday, Sept 17, 2023

The Trapp Cabin Trail Races are held annually at the beautiful Trapp Family Outdoor Center in Stowe, Vt. This perennial favorite is a great opportunity to try out trail running, to look for your personal best, or put the pedal down and go for the gold. It is also an important fundraiser for our non-profit organization.

Race Description

Teenage runners at Trapp enjoying their time at the eventJoin us for this idyllic event! Beginning and ending in the Trapp Family Lodge Meadow, the races wind through 800 vertical feet of idyllic forest, bubbling streams, and wildflowers. The races follow a dirt road briefly before merging with double track cross-country trails. The 5K follows Lodge Spur to Luce Hill Loop, following the single track trail back to the finish. The 10K continues on to Tap Line, follows Chris’s Run to the cabin and returns on Growler and Tap Line to the finish. The half-marathon is by far our most popular race and attracts over 200 racers from all over New England. The course does a double-loop of the 10.5K and offers runners a perfect opportunity to train for the upcoming Trapp Mountain Marathon. These beautiful trails are not accessible to the general public so this is a special opportunity to run in a unique location.
