About This Event
Our racers absolutely loved this course for the 17th Annual Basin Harbor 5K/10K so we're gonna use it again! This course is beautiful! It is gently rolling with very short hills. What's really great about this course is that the scenery is always changing. You'll start and end at the Red Mill Restaurant, and you'll run past the air strip, Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, down by the beach and boat slips, around the harbor, through the woods, and past the golf course. The course is partly paved and partly dirt/gravel. You're never bored on this run and the scenery changes make the distance seem shorter than it really is. Choose from 5K or 10K. The 10K runners will run the loop twice. Several runners reported PRs at the same race back on June 23.
We are incredibly fortunate host this race at the Basin Harbor Resort and Boat Club – a spectacular seasonal resort on the shores of Lake Champlain. Please thank the Basin Harbor owners and staff if you see them, and of course, be super respectful of this tranquil resort and its guests while we are visiting.
