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.

Run 11 of the 36 miles of the West River Trail along the beautiful West River in Southern Vermont. The run will start at Londonderry Depot, 34 West River Street, South Londonderry, VT 05155 and end at Jamaica State Park, 48 Salmon Hole Lane, Jamaica, Vermont 05343
Relay teams of 3 or individuals are invited to participate. Runners have the option to ride the bus from Jamaica State Park back to the start after awards ceremony. Relay teams are allowed one car during the run to transport. Teams are responsible for their own transportation.
Runner 1: 4 miles of flat trail. Runner is on the main rail-trail, which provides a more gentle grade and relatively easy travel. Trail follows the campground road through the campground and over a single-lane bridge crossing the Winhall River.
Runner 2: 4 miles of uphill and switchback, single trail. From the south trailhead of Winhall Campground, the surpack surface of the West River Trail continues along the river’s edge. Becoming a footpath through the forest, the single-track section of trail involves several short uphill jaunts and a variety of stream crossings. This is considered the most challenging section of the trail.
Runner 3: 3.5 miles of gradual downhill and flat trail. The switchback trail traverses back and forth across the steep face of the dam, arriving in the river valley as a footpath. The trail follows the river down stream, crossing the Cobb Bridge. The West River Trail continues along the old railroad grade. This section of trail is well-used and provides easy running with lovely views of the river.
