Free Pre- and Post-Race Stretching Events for 2018

We’re excited for the 2018 race season in Vermont! We’re once again offering free pre- and post-race stretching to participants for a variety of events in our area.

We love being part of these races and supporting the organizations that set them up, particularly RaceVermont and Essex Junction Recreation and Parks. Not only are these races a lot of fun, they raise hundreds of dollars for important causes.
