Slate Valley Trails to host the Slate Valley Scramble, Aug. 14

Saturday, Aug. 14 — POULTNEY — Slate Valley Trails (SVT) is set to host the second annual Slate Valley Scramble, a trail-running half marathon and 8K race, on Aug. 14 at the Fairgrounds Trailhead in Poultney. The race is a fundraiser for SVT with all proceeds going toward the maintenance and upkeep of SVT’s 40-plus miles of trails. The race is almost entirely on single-track trails or gravel, and can be completed in time for people interested in hiking instead of running.

This year’s event will feature a post-race celebration complete with a kids’ fun run, awards ceremony, donated snacks and drinks, and raffle featuring goods from Sensible Shoe of Rutland, Darn Tough Vermont, Skida Headwear & Accessories, Cabot Creamery, and Goodr sunglasses.

There is still time to register to race or volunteer at Plan a fun day in Poultney by joining SVT for a morning on the trails and then heading over to the East Poultney Green to celebrate East Poultney Day!

Slate Valley Trails, Inc. (SVT) is a volunteer community group founded in 2015, whose mission is to build, maintain and promote foot and bicycling trails in the Slate Valley region of southwestern Vermont. SVT is a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization and a chapter of the Vermont Mountain Bike Association.
