About The Leaf Peepers Half Marathon

The Leaf Peepers Half Marathon in Waterbury, Vermont on October 1st, 2023 is a race that should not be missed. The route takes runners through the beautiful rolling hills of rural Vermont and offers some of the most breathtaking views imaginable.

The course begins at Central Street in Waterbury and winds its way 26.2 miles to Stowe Mountain Resort. Along the way you will pass by farms, streams, ponds and forests as well as many picturesque towns including Morrisville and Cambridge. The scenery alone makes this race worth doing!

Weather-wise October is usually quite mild with temperatures ranging from around 40 degrees Fahrenheit during early morning hours to highs of 70 or more in afternoon hours so dressing appropriately for running conditions is key. If you plan on taking part make sure to bring layers for warmth before setting off but also light attire if it turns out to be unseasonably warm (which sometimes happens).

There are typically plenty of spectators cheering participants along throughout the course which really helps motivate runners when fatigue starts setting in towards mile 20! This year there will also be live music playing throughout certain sections which adds an extra bit of excitement for those who want it. Furthermore, the race organizers have decided to add a post-race party after competitors cross the finish line featuring local food vendors selling their products; such as maple syrup candies and apple cider donuts – yum!

Overall this event provides an excellent opportunity for athletes looking for a challenging yet enjoyable half marathon experience set against one of America‚Äôs most scenic backdrops – Vermont’s autumn foliage! Whether you’re a first time runner or seasoned veteran I highly recommend signing up now before all spots fill up!
