VT100 News-Athletes with Disabilities Division Announced for 2017



 
The Vermont 100 (VT100) is excited to announce the addition of an Athletes with Disability (AWD) Division, starting at the upcoming 2017 race.

Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports Founder Laura Farrell created the Vermont 100 originally as a fundraising event for the nonprofit and the ultra-run continues to be a major fundraiser for the organization to this day. Vermont Adaptive is a nationally recognized organization that empowers people of all abilities through inclusive sports and recreational programming.

As founder of the Vermont 100 mile Endurance run and Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports it gives me great pleasure and joy to now have athletes with disabilities able to participate and compete in this amazing event. This means that ALL athletes that are able and have trained are able to enjoy and challenge themselves at the Vermont 100 mile Endurance race     Laura Farrell, Founder of Both Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports and the Vermont 100.


The AWD Division will include athletes with visual and mobility impairments. AWD athletes will still need to complete the course within the time limits and (if running the 100 mile race) will still need to submit a qualifier race to be eligible to run.

With the history and relationship between the Vermont 100 and Vermont Adaptive, it seems natural to create an Athletes with Disabilities Division for the race, As far as we know, the Vermont 100 will be the first trail or ultra race to include an Athlete with Disabilities Division.   Amy Rusiecki, Race Director, Vermont 100.


The VT100 will make accommodations for AWD athletes to facilitate their participation, such as allowing them to have a guide for the entire race. Further details regarding the race regulations are available at the race website: AWD or https://vermont100endurancerun.blogspot.com/p/awd-division.html.

Participating in a race with an Athlete With Disability division is the epitome of inclusiveness; I am thrilled to toe the line of one of the most prestigious ultras in the country while pushing my mind and body to new challenges. And to do it in a race that benefits Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports, where I first skied with sighted guides, is incredibly gratifying for me. Kyle Robidoux, a runner who is legally blind and plans to race the VT100 this summer.

Giving Tuesday at Vermont 100/Vermont Adaptive

Planning for the 2017 Vermont 100 is underway, so we wanted to let you know about registration, which will open in January.  Full details and registration are available here.  The 2017 Vermont 100 will be on July 15-16.

If you are interested in securing your spot for the event now, we are currently accepting registration into the Vermont Adaptive Team Run 2 Empower, which is the newly branded charity runner program.  If you are interested, email the Race Director (vt100@vermontadaptive.org) to learn more!

Most importantly, tomorrow (Nov. 29th) is Giving Tuesday.  Vermont Adaptive (which the VT100 is a fundraiser for) is a wonderful program that empowers individuals with disabilities through year-round, statewide sports and recreation.  They have an anonymous donor that will match all donations to Vermont Adaptive tomorrow - so any donation will have double the impact!  Please consider making a donation (no matter how small) to Vermont Adaptive tomorrow.  You can donate here, or decide to donate to any of the 2017 Team Run 2 Empower participants who are already fundraising.

Happy trails, and we hope to see may of you this summer!

A Note from Our Race Director #vt100 #vermont100 #ultrarun #VT100K


Hello Runners!
For the last time, I'd like to congratulate everyone on your amazing accomplishment race weekend.  Well done!  It was great to see many familiar faces, meet new runners, and watch the family and friends that supported you along the way.  More than that, it was incredible to watch the joy and pain as many of you cross the finish line and accomplished an incredible goal.  Thanks for joining us at the 2016 Vermont 100!

A few logistical things - first off, if you left before the Sunday BBQ and didn't get your finisher award, please let me know so I can get that to you! 


Runners completing the 100 mile in under 24 hours will get a large buckle, runners completing the 100 mile in over 24 hours will get a smaller buckle, and 100km runners will get a horseshoe.  Please let me know what you should get, and where to mail it.

I would encourage everyone to complete the post-race survey - it's a great opportunity to provide feedback, as well as vote for your favorite aid station.  And, it's due to feedback in the post race survey that the VT100 continues to improve each year.  This year, the inclusion of the over 24 hour buckle is due to feedback from last year's runners!  A link to the survey is below.


There is plenty of race merchandise still, and it's a great Thank You to your crew, pacer, or patient family members that supported you through the weekend or through your past months of training.  Check it out!



Don't forget about our PHOTO CONTEST! Our generous sponsors (Salomon, Hoka, Farm to Feet, Julbo, and Dion Snowshoes) have sent me so much gear that we have a few extra items to give away!

So, they are helping sponsor a VT100 story/photo contest!

1. submit your story/photo to the race email at vt100@vermontadaptive.org

2. submit your story/photo on the race Facebook page

3. forward a link to your race report to either location

We will accept entries until end of the day August 7th, and will send out prizes to a few of the best submissions as well as some random entrants.

Lastly, I want to thank each and every one of you for what you are doing for Vermont Adaptive.  Each and every one of you helps support the programs through your participation in the Vermont 100.

I hope to see many of you at the 2017 Vermont 100 (July 14-16, 2017), if not sooner on the trails.  Watch the website for registration dates (likely mid-January), and good luck to the Grand Slammers as you continue your journey in Leadville!
Let me know if you have questions, comments, or feedback.
Thanks!
-Amy Rusieck and the rest of the VT100 Race Committee

Welcome to the 28th Annual Vermont 100 Endurance Race-A Message from Our Race Director #vt100 #vermont100 #ultrarun


Welcome to Vermont!
Whether you’re running, crewing, volunteering or just want to watch the action a little, we welcome you ALL!

The VT 100 is excited to be starting in lovely West Windsor, VT for it’s 28th year running. We want to thank all the local people and businesses who have made it possible for us to return to Silver Hill.




What ever your role, thank you all for joining us this weekend! Every penny raised by this event goes to Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports, a non-profit, volunteer based program which provides recreational and competitive athletic opportunities, instruction and equipment to people with disabilities.





A HUGE Thank You to Our 2016 Race Sponsors!!
 


The Vermont 100 Endurance Race Committee would like to THANK the following companies for their generous support of our race allowing us to DONATE more money to:
Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports:
Another welcome and 'thank you' from us goes out to the 300+ volunteers who make this event possible! They have been clearing and marking the trials for weeks now and will be out there manning the aid stations on Saturday and Sunday and then cleaning up for days after that!


Last but not least, thanks to the amazing Race Committee who has been meeting all year long to make this event happen. They put their hearts and souls into this event and you can really see it. They are all volunteers, most of them local to the area and very few of them ultra runners. They put endless hours into making this world class event really shine and then they rarely show their faces enough to get any recognition.

“Welcome to the Vermont 100, Have a Great Race!!! “
