Maple Leaf Half Marathon and Kotler 5K
The Maple Leaf Half Marathon traverses truly gorgeous Vermont landscapes. Your run will take you from the downtown community to picturesque village settings to country roads past farm lands back to the finish. Adding to the beauty, Vermont will be in the early stages of fall foliage.
The Maple Leaf Half Marathon and Kotler 5K will be run on Saturday, September 7, 2019 in beautiful Manchester, Vermont, a vibrant region with much to offer. Organization is excellent, and the course is scenic and enjoyable. There is something for everyone in this rural Vermont tour. It’s one of those “must do” New England races. Manchester, Vermont is a year-round sports, recreation, foodie and shopping destination in the heart of the Green Mountain National Forest.
The Maple Leaf Half Marathon is once again a fixture on the late summer calendar in Manchester and the mountains! Beginning in the late 1970s, the Maple Leaf had grown in stature and appeal, attracting world-class athletes and crowds of over 1,300 runners. The brainchild of local restaurateur, Guy Thomas (Zoey’s), who passed away on December 30, 2017 (please see obituary at the bottom of the page), the Maple Leaf was nationally famous, being seen as a tune-up for the New York City Marathon. In time, the race was organized by a number of other individuals and groups but faded from the local scene.
