Join us on Saturday, October 6th for the first annual “Coolidge 5K” and 1-Mile Walk in beautiful Plymouth Notch, VT!
The mixed-surface 5K course explores the delightful grounds and surrounding areas of the historic Coolidge homestead. Runners will cover the gently rolling terrain partly on road and partly on mowed grass paths. The event will be professionally timed.
After the race, runners and non-runners alike are invited take part in the “‘I Do Not Choose to Run’ 1-Mile Walk,” so named for Coolidge’s famous and characteristically concise declaration about his intention not to seek re-election for president in 1928. The walk will cover key sights around the historic grounds.
The 5K and 1-mile walk are part of a fun, family-friendly day at the President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site that also includes the Plymouth Notch Antique Apple Fest. Race start time is 10am.
