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.

We've invited our Charity Runners to tell us a little about themselves...

Chris Eaton

In July 2016, I am running the Vermont 100. For those of you who don’t know, that is a 100 mile race through the hills and mountains of Southern Vermont. I know what you are thinking, “100 miles?!?! That’s crazy!!!” or maybe even, “Chris, you are an idiot.” But for those of you who know me, I am always up for a challenge.

And why make a 100 miler any easier than it has to be? I am running as a charity runner. The Vermont 100 raises money for the Vermont Adaptive Ski and Spots program. This is an amazing program that provides recreational and sports opportunities to people with disabilities. I love any program that can help anyone more fully enjoy the outdoors! I first heard of Adaptive programs when I lived in Colorado. I watched as the program taught anyone--from a child with a disability to a wounded veteran--learn to ski and snowboard. I was always impressed with the programs ability to bring outdoor opportunities to life for everyone. I was beyond excited when I learned there was an adaptive sports program in Vermont. And I am wicked excited to be able to help them raise money so they can continue sharing the love of sport with everyone!

So what you can do to help me: 1) want to run a few training miles with me? AWESOME. 2) You want to be charitable and make a donation to a great cause? EVEN BETTER! 3) You want to watch me attempt a 100 miler? Put some money in and I’ll make it happen! Every bit helps!

Vermont Adaptive is a cause that I fully believe in and support (if you keep reading below, I think you’ll see why). I am backing it with my own financial contribution as well as by running this race. I hope you will support me in this endeavor!

If you have any questions, please let me know!
