Jay Peak Trail Fest: 3-5ks, 25k, 50k, Kids Trail Run Jay Peak VT

Jay Peak Trail Fest: 3-5ks, 25k, 50k Ultra & Kids Trail Run.  Jay Peak VT

5th Annual Jay Peak Trail Fest

The inaugural event in 2012 exceeded all of our expectations at all levels.  We had more participants, more fun….and more challenges than expected….just the way a weekend long trail festival should be!  The 2013, 2014, &  2015 years were even better.  We have streamlined some more of our processes, gained some great new sponsors and worked on the trails, therefore, our 2016 year should be the best yet.

Jay Peak has long been known to provide some of the best skiing in New England (more snow than ANYWHERE in the east). We have taken some of the winter flare of Jay Peak and transformed it into a trail racing weekend that you won’t soon forget.

THANK YOU for coming out and making the 5th annual Trail Fest the best year ever!!

Here are the 25k RESULTS

The Races

The Jay Peak Trail Fest begins with three different 5ks; a black diamond, blue square, and green circle on Saturday. Then runners wake up on Sunday to a 25k and a 50k. Don’t worry, we didn’t forget the kids. We will have a Kid’s Trail Race on Saturday.

The Festival

Jay Peak provides the music, pizza, and a water park, while Sub 5 provides the trail running extravaganza. Take a poke at our Trail Runners With Issues Challenge and earn a specially designed tech top to remember the occasion. If endurance is what you choose, the 25k and 50k races are more for you. With over 4000ft & 9000ft in elevation gain, our 25k and 50k ultra are challenges like no others.


See you at Jay Peak
