Hello friends and family!
SIX03 is proud to be participating in our FIFTH consecutive Vermont 100. Woo-hoo!
We have 10 runners. Each aims to run either 100 kilometers or 100 miles on July 20, and each is asking for your fundraising support as they train. Donations will directly benefit Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sport and every gift counts.
The Vermont 100 is more than endurance race. It is also THE largest annual fundraiser for Vermont Adapttive, an organization that empowers people with disabilities through sports and recreation. This includes everything from basic access to advanced instruction at alpine skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, sailing, cycling, hiking, rock climbing, running, tennis, horseback riding, wellness retreats, and more. The non-profit serves all ages and your donation will directly impact its participants, programs, and mission.
Donations can be made to individual team member fundraising pages or directly to our collective team page here. It alls goes to the same place and any amount helps. You might even double your gift if your employer matches donations. Please follow the on-page links to give or contact us if you have any questions.

Vermont 100 Endurance Race - VT 100 Fundraising
The Vermont 100 Endurance Race is celebrating its 31st year! While the Vermont 100 Endurance Ride is much older, the run portion was started by the same woman, Laura Farrell, who founded Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. The VT 100 is put on every year by a committee of 30 dedicated volunteers who work year round, 500+ volunteers who come out for race weekend, more than 30 private land owners and many donors of funds, products or services. Monies raised from the event support the year-round programs offered by Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports.
The 100 mile course is a "shamrock" loop, consisting of 70% dirt or jeep roads with the rest on woods trails with just a couple miles of pavement. The course both climbs and descends 17,000 feet. Participants have 30 hours to complete the race and many strive to finish in less than 24 hours. In 2008 we added a 100 K course that uses almost all of the same trail, just cutting out the first of the shamrocks leaves. The ride event offers a 100 mile course concurrent with the 100 mile run, as well as a 50 mile and 75 mile event that uses much of the same course.
All 100 Mile run participants must have completed a 50 mile race in 12 hours or less to qualify and every runner is required to volunteer for 8 hours at a running event or trail work to enter.
