The Lewis Creek Covered Bridges 5K/10K & Half Marathon meanders through Charlotte’s countryside along Lewis Creek, through two historic covered bridges and will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 13.

Rayne Herzog of Race Vermont is the local personal trainer who brings these runners through town every year. He is the race director and the health club general manager at Shelburne Health and Fitness.

All three races begin and end at Charlotte Central School. The 5K and 10K racers will run the same course as the half marathon, except they will turn around and return to the school before reaching the bridges. Race walkers are welcomed in the 5K division. There is a 500-person limit for this race.

The fee for the 5K/10K race is $30 and the half marathon is $45 if registered by Tuesday, May 9. Add $10 to race-day registration. Price includes finisher medal for all three divisions. T-shirts available for $15 if ordered by April 22.
