Vergennes to host road races on Aug. 25

VERGENNES — Whether you are fleet of foot or just enjoy getting out and toddling along, the Little City invites you to join the 5K, 10K and 15K races at Vergennes Day this coming Saturday morning.
The 37th annual Little City Road Races and Fun Run will kick off the Saturday morning activities. Hundreds of participants are expected to take part.
The 5K run and walk will take you through city streets, starting and finishing at the Vergennes Union Elementary School on School Street. It’s a great opportunity for friends and family to get out and participate in a fun-filled and healthy event.
There will also be a 10K run for more serious runners, which includes a challenging hill climb on Route 66 at the 3-mile mark. For the most serious — a 15K.
