About The Charlotte Covered Bridge Half Marathon
The Charlotte Covered Bridge Half Marathon in Shelburne, Vermont on 9 September, 2023 is a beautiful and scenic race that runners of all levels will enjoy. The course winds its way through the picturesque countryside of central Vermont, taking you past hillsides blanketed with evergreen trees and charming covered bridges scattered throughout the route.
One of the highlights of this half marathon is running over two stunning covered bridges. You’ll get to experience firsthand some of New England’s unique history as you cross over these iconic structures. The terrain along the route isn’t too challenging; there are a few rolling hills but nothing overly strenuous.
The typical weather for early September in Shelburne is very pleasant; daytime temperatures are usually around 70 degrees Fahrenheit with low humidity making it perfect conditions for running. You likely won’t encounter any heavy rains or snow at this time of year either which makes it an ideal race day!
There’s usually a good amount of spectator support along the course so you’ll have plenty people cheering you on as you go by – friends and family can easily access many spots along the route to come out and show their support if they wish! Plus, many local businesses offer discounted items like food or drinks to participants during race weekend which helps make your experience even more enjoyable.
Overall, I’d highly recommend signing up for this half marathon! It’s a great opportunity to explore some wonderful scenery while also testing your limits as a runner in one fell swoop – plus who wouldn’t want to run across two historic covered bridges? With its manageable terrain and pleasant weather conditions, it’s sure to be an unforgettable experience!
