Welcome to the 28th Vermont 100 and Moonlight in Vermont 50/75 Endurance ride and run. The only simultaneous 100 mile for run & ride. Check out the Runners page here

 

**NO EARLY ARRIVALS. CAMP OPENS AT NOON THURSDAY - see Directions for early arrival camping.

Important Change...We've gone paperless. There will be no paper program! You will need to download information from this site prior to the ride. All crew directions, schedules for holds & ride information will be available in the downloadable program one week before the ride. Remember Cell service is not available at ride camp, please plan on downloading and printing (if necessary) before you come.

 

Because of our new traffic patterns and camp setup there will be people available to park you.  Please conserve space and respect our volunteers. There are no trees to picket to, please come prepared with temporary fencing.

 

Dogs are not to be left in camp unattended, please have your dog on a leash.

 

Ride packets can be picked up Friday from Noon – 4PM at the white house on the top of the hill.  Only ONE crew vehicle allowed per rider (we would appreciate it if anyone pairs up).  We will be issueing crew vehicle tags.

 

DIRECTIONS TO THE SITE ARE DIFFERENT PLEASE FOLLOW THEM!

 

DO NOT USE GPS. Only use the directions provided to you by ride management, they are precise and will keep you out of trouble.

 

All riders must be wearing helmets when mounted.  Any horse remaining in camp during the ride must have someone available to care for it.  All riders must wear lighted gear front and rear for the night portion of the ride.  ALL horses pulled need to be cleared at the treatment barn before leaving camp.

 

Please bring your water containers filled.  If the field is wet, you cannot get to the pond.  There is an ample water hose available across the road near the white house.  Water tanks at the finish line are for the finish and 50 mile stop and go only!

 

The trail is not open for pre-riding.  Pre-riding information will be available in your online program.

  • A nightly noise curfew will be in place at Silver Hill. It will be 10pm on Friday night and 11pm on Saturday night. No cheering after this hour. Sorry.

Riders and crews are responsible for following the marked routes and deviations.

Please take the time to read any signs.  It is a good idea to carry a flash light for the night section of the trail.  You read better with light!

WATER

Please conserve water, fill your tanks and refill at the following places.

  • Hose at Silver Hill barn, across road from camp.
  • South Woodstock Fire House has a hose between the doors. 
  • Kedron Valley Stables - Rte 106 just north of South Woodstock.

Water on trail:  Landowners put out tanks and hoses, RIDERS keep your eyes open for these, use the hose on your horse.  We ask them to put tanks in visible spots. 

 

Volunteers: We need volunteers, be part of an amazing event, the only 100 mile in the country where horses and people ride/run the same trail at the same time. We need: scribes for vets, timers, pulse takers, trail markers and unmarkers, horse ambulance drivers, water crews, parking people. Contact Jenny Kimberly
