We are now putting all of our summer series under one umbrella – GO PLAY. Our goal is to promote the events to more than just our runners and competitive bikers. We want everyone to come out and PLAY! With our new sponsor we are excited to be able to offer free registration for all students entering grade 12 and younger. All events are $5 per person with no medals, ribbons or awards with the exception of the mountain bike series which will have end of season awards. GO PLAY shirts will be available for sale at all races. If you participate in all 12 events you will be crowned an official GO PLAY Champion at the last event of the season.

Let your favorite pooch enjoy the end of summer with a dip in the pool! The Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) is hosting the Dog Days of Summer Pool Party to raise funds for the homeless animals in Rutland County. All funds raised, including entrance fees, are for the Rutland County Humane Society. There will be free swim throughout the event (for dogs only!) along with games (fastest doggy paddle and a dog jumping contest) and more. All dogs must be leashed unless swimming in the pool. Vermont law requires all dogs to be up to date on their rabies shots. Rain or shine. Fun for the whole family, especially the dog! A special thank you to the Rutland Recreation & Parks Department for donating the use of the pool!
