Craftsbury Half Marathon

The Craftsbury, VT, Outdoor Center held its first half marathon Saturday on a beautiful and challenging course that traversed 13.1 miles of dirt roads, ski trails, and single-track through the woods to the Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro. 2,000 feet of elevation gain with beer and lunch at the end. Adam Martin, a nordic skier with the Craftsbury Green Racing Project (above, center) won in 1:16:42; David Sinclair, Waitsfield, VT, left, was second; Patrick Caldwell, US Ski Team (in blue), was third. US Ski Team (and GRP) skier Ida Sargent, below, won the women’s race in 1:37:05. There can’t be many half marathons that can match this one  for the scenery alone, not to mention the hills and the beer. Click here for a full gallery.  Click here for results.
