Sunday's main event of the 10K race also includes the Half Marathon, the 9th Annual 5K race and 5K Walk, the 5K Corporate Challenge Walk and the 19th Annual Kids' Downtown Mile Run. We are proud to announce that for the first time in the history of the Crowley, monies will be raised in support of our most gallant, brave and selfless wounded soldiers and veterans, so please support "the brave" by running the Crowley. Yes, this is a weekend full of events for runners, athletes, and families...something for everyone in the Green Mountains!
The 19th Annual Kid's Downtown Mile Run is also slated to be bigger than ever. This event has grown from 50 runners to 350+ in the past few years. Children from the Rutland County schools participate in this event along with young runners and walkers from Canada, and many states throughout the U.S. This is a fun run for children with the main purpose of promoting healthy hearts and bodies through youth fitness and run in conjunction with the Kids Run the Nation Program of RRCA.
