Jay Peak Trail Run Festival

September 4th – 5th, 2021

This is a unique trail running experience designed for the entire family that cannot be matched.
With 7 races for all abilities, there is something for everyone. Whether you are a kid who just likes being outdoors (where they belong), someone just trying out your first trail race, a speed goat that loves hammering until your legs give out or an ultra runner that wants to see just how far your body & spirit can go, we have a race for you.

With 3 different hotels & condos fitting every budget, an indoor water park, ice rink, climbing wall, arcade, movie theater, several restaurants, and more…..there is plenty to do with the family in between races. All registrants get a hotel discount code, so come, stay & #runJAYPEAK!

Saturday, Sept 5th, Races include:

With over 1000ft in elevation gain & 2 aid stations, this is one of the hardest but most rewarding 5k’s you will ever complete.
More details

Some mowed nordic trails, some single track, and awesome views. We are convinced that this might be the best 5k trail in New England. Come see if we are correct.

Is it our easiest trail race? Yes. Is it flat? No. Can you do it? Yes. Come join us at 10:30.

Tired of kids’ trail races that aren’t on trails and unfair to your little one because their are older kids competing with them? Learn why our race is the best kids trail race in the US.

Sunday, Sept 6th Races Include:

6:30AM 53.1KM ULTRA
3 laps of 11 miles around Jay Peak. Aid stations avg 3 miles apart, all different terrain & insane views. What’s not to love….especially if you love pain.

6:30AM 22 MILER
3 laps too crazy for you? 2 laps for a 35.4km run still takes courage and grit…I bet you can do this.

Our gem of a race. Most trail races offer the full 13.1. Trust us, these 11 miles (17.7km for our Canadian friends) will feel like a half marathon (21km).
