Trapp Cabin Trail Races:
5 K, 10 K and half marathon
Sunday, September 19th, 2021
The Trapp Cabin Trail Races are back this year and will once again be held at the beautiful Trapp Family Outdoor Center in Stowe, Vt. We look forward to seeing you! 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.
Join 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 60 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.

UPDATE FROM 2020:
If you were signed up for the 2020 race, you will remember that we had to cancel the event. All 2020 race entries to the Trapp Cabin races will be moved to 2021 event. We look forward to seeing you then. You can double check if you were one of the few registered for the half marathon here. We will not be offering any refunds but we are happy to extend your race entry to a friend if you can no longer participate. Thank you for understanding. Contact us if you have any questions.
We also invite you to consider participating in the Heady Trotter, which will take place in Stowe on October 17th, 2021. Here’s another great opportunity to be active with friends and family.
