Rutland Regional’s Vermont Great Run/Walk to benefit the Foley Cancer Center
Rutland – On Saturday, September 21st, Rutland Regional Medical Center will host the 3rd Annual Vermont Great Run & Walk, in beautiful downtown Rutland. The race starts and ends on Center Street. Registration begins at 8:30am and the race starts promptly at 10:30am. All proceeds from this special event will benefit the Foley Cancer Center’s Palliative Care program at Rutland Regional.

The race route is designed for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities, with distances including 2, 4, 6 and 8K. The 8k is ideal for those participants who prefer a longer route, while those who are new to physical activity, may find the 2k more appealing. Runners and walkers can participate individually, or as part of a group, running or walking the distance that best fit their interests and abilities. All routes start and finish on Center Street in Rutland.

Once again, this year, Rutland Regional will partner with Come Alive Outside’s Green Street Challenge initiative to bring green grass to Center Street, creating a natural play space for children and families. Folks are also encouraged to check out the unique shops and restaurants in our historic downtown.

In addition, there will be a variety of activities for race participants and fans to enjoy before and after the race including the Rutland County Farmer’s Market, yoga and Zumba classes, music, and food which will take place on Center Street and the surrounding area of downtown Rutland.

Event sponsors include Presenting sponsor: Carpenter & Costin; Gold Sponsors: Killington-Pico Ski Resort Partners, Ryan Smith & Carbine, VNA & Hospice of the Southwest Region; Refreshment Sponsors; Hannaford Supermarket  and Pepsi Company, and Media Sponsor: Catamount Radio.
