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.

Service Requirement


Please note, eight hours of volunteer service are required to participate in the 2017 VT 100. Service must be within 14 months prior to the race, and can be completed at any trail/ultra race. (Road races or trail work are also acceptable, but we prefer helping the trail/ultra community.)

Report your time using this FORM

Officially recognized trail maintenance of any 50 Km or longer race or local, state or national trail system that encourages recreation is also ALWAYS accepted.

The VT 100 will usually accept time volunteered to youth running teams or clubs and any program that directly engages folks with disabilities in recreation.  [Please note that crewing or pacing a runner at an ultra is NOT considered volunteering!]

The service must take place during the 14 months before the race.

All acceptable service must be completed prior to June 15th. In the event that you are unable or unwilling to meet this requirement, you may instead pay a $200 service buyout fee. This can be paid on our online registration site or by check. The fee is due by the same June 15th deadline.

After acceptance into the Vermont 100, runners can self-report their volunteer service electronically using this FORM .  You must have (1) date you volunteered, (2) where you volunteered, (3) what you did to volunteer, (4) number of hours you volunteered, (5) name and contact information for whoever you volunteered for.
