About The The Black Fly
The Black Fly Half Marathon in Westmore, Vermont on 20 May, 2023 is a unique opportunity to experience the natural beauty of this town nestled in the Green Mountains. The route follows a scenic loop through the countryside and small towns surrounding Westmore. Runners will be treated to views of rolling hills, fields full of wildflowers, and glimpses of wildlife throughout the course.
The weather around that time is usually mild with temperatures ranging from 60-75 degrees F (15-24 C). It’s a great time for running as there is usually low humidity and few chances for rain or thunderstorms. This makes it easier for runners to enjoy all that nature has to offer during their run.
The race also draws crowds from all over New England who come out to cheer on runners as they make their way along the course. Whether you’re an experienced runner or first timer, you can count on plenty of support from these enthusiastic fans!
One thing that sets The Black Fly apart from other half marathons is its unique elevation profile – most races have one big hill at the end, but The Black Fly features several smaller hills throughout which provides a challenge without having one big climb at the end when your legs are already tired! This makes it perfect for both beginners and experienced racers alike who want something more than just flat terrain.
Overall The Black Fly Half Marathon offers an enjoyable running experience set against picturesque scenery with moderate weather conditions and plenty of cheering supporters along the way! Plus with its challenging yet manageable elevation profile this race really stands out among others in Vermont making it ideal for anyone looking for an exciting outdoor adventure!
