Jay Peak Trail Fest: three 5k's, 11 miler, 22 miler 53.1k ultra trail race, Kids Trail Run Jay Peak VT
Jay Peak Trail Running Festival Aug 31-Sept 1 2019

8th Annual Jay Peak Trail Fest

The inaugural event in 2012 exceeded all of our expectations at all levels.  We started with a 25k & 50k, but there were rumors that we were not THE hardest 50k out there and that bothered us. …
So in 2017, we recreated the 50k into the epic, unmatched 53.1K Ultra. And just to make sure you know that we we welcome those with some common sense left, we added an 11 miler & 35.4K (22 miles).

Of course we kept our Run Three 5k’s in one day races on Saturday and our Kids trail race which we are pretty sure is THE best kids race in North America.

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.

The Races

The Jay Peak Trail Fest begins with three different 5ks; a black diamond, blue square, and green circle on Saturday. Then watch out mini trail runners kill it on our Kids trail course.

On Sunday to an 11 miler, 22 miler & the 53.1K Ultra.


See you at Jay Peak
