6th Annual West River Trail Run

The West River Trail Run is an annual run and FUNdraiser to benefit The Collaborative’s long-standing programs like the After-school Program, Summer Camp, and Refuse To Use Program. The full 11 mile trail run starts at the South Londonderry Depot and ends at Jamaica State Park. This run is great for trail running enthusiasts of all skill levels. In addition to the competitive, unofficial timed 11 mile run for individual runners, it has a 3-leg relay option, walkers’ start time and a 5K Fun Run. We also have volunteer opportunities at the registration table and water stations. Visit our Volunteer Opportunities page to learn more. We ask no dogs. If you would like to push a stroller, the 5K or the first leg of the race is best.

This is a great June race with ideal running weather, through a scenic route with gorgeous river, woods and mountain views. Runner perks include a custom design t-shirt, unique finisher medals, gift bags of Vermont goodies and a free day pass into Jamaica State Park. Overall winners (M/F) and top finishers for six different age groups are awarded. The race includes a post race celebration with food, music, raffles, and swimming hole cool off.

The full 11 mile trail run starts at the South Londonderry Depot and ends at Jamaica State Park. This run is great for trail running enthusiasts of all skill levels. In addition to the competitive, unofficial timed 11 mile run for individual runners, it has a 3-leg relay option, walkers’ start time and a 5K Fun Run.

The West River Trail Run course is surpack for the first 4 miles and follows the West River as you pass through Winhall Brook camp ground. Then into the woods as you watch your step with rocks, leaves and trees (oh my!), cross over Angel Falls (yes, there is water but there are rocks to step across), don’t forget to look up! Up the hill you go! Then down the gnarly switchback at Ball Mountain Dam. Almost there with 4 miles left, as the river is now to the right of you! A couple miles down the surpack in Jamaica State Park and you cross the finish to dip your feet in the river. We ask no dogs. If you would like to push a stroller, the 5K or the first leg of the race is best.

The West River Trail Fundraising Run/Walk

The West River Trail Fundraising Run/Walk

West River Trail Benefit RunWe had 18 participants, and raised $401 at the West River Trail Fundraising Run/Walk on a beautiful Saturday morning, July 27.
Thank you to Tim Fleming who conceived of the idea, did much of the organizing and publicity, and ran all the way to the Townshend Dam! Thank you to his daughter, Elsie, for running with him to the Rice Farm Rd trailhead, and to his wife Rebecca for providing water and snacks at that end of the trail for the runners and walkers. Thanks also to everyone who supported the trail by participating and making a donation, and to those who didn’t walk or run but made a donation anyway.  And thanks to Malcolm Moore for being there to help with parking, take photos and ride sweep to check on participants; and to Jim Webster for helping Kathleen White with registering participants and having water and watermelon available back at the Marina Trailhead, for those who went out and back.  A fun time and a successful event!
