Description

The Vermont 100 Endurance Race is one of the original 100 mile runs in the USA and a part of the Grand Slam Series of Ultrarunning. Each year, 300 runners attempt to finish this hilly race over beautiful Vermont back roads and trails under the 30 hour cutoff point, and a well-trained few finish in under 24 hours. The race proceeds support Vermont Adaptive.

Ron Abramson (The Vermont 100 Sponsorship Coordinator) will be running the 100-miler - and he will run a portion of the race blindfolded.

Manchester, NH lawyer Ron Abramson has been a runner since 2006. Having completed over 25 marathons and ultra-marathons, Abramson decided to set his sights on a new challenge. On July 18, 2015, Abramson will join 300+ other runners – and dozens of horses – at the start of the Vermont 100 Endurance Run, where he’ll tackle his biggest running challenge to date: 100 miles through the trails and back roads of eastern Vermont. As if that wasn’t challenging enough, he will do a portion of it blindfolded to raise funds and awareness for the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (MABVI).
