The EA24 is a 6-, 12-, and 24-hour fixed-time track race held in scenic Southern Vermont. Chip timing by Mike Melton, photography by Scott Rokis, fleece jackets for all distances, gourmet breakfast spread & awesome swag!
Before you ask, the EA24 was named for the Revolutionary War hero and Founder of the State of Vermont, Ethan Allen, not the place to buy furniture. We’ll leave the couches to them 😉
USATF Certified (VT18004JK) 397.63-meter all-weather fully-lit track. 100k and 100-mile splits are also certified in both directions. USATF Sanctioned and IAU Bronze Label event. There will be a turnaround every 4 hours.
The track enjoys views of Mt. Anthony and the Bennington Battle Monument, featured in the race crest! There is ample room to set up personal aid stations and trackside tables.
The aid station will be stocked with all the traditional favorites: electrolyte drinks and gels, sweet and salty snacks, hot food throughout the day and night, plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, and local Vermont specialties. Expect lots of maple syrup, too!
This is a cupless race! Please help us keep things green by bringing your own bottle or cup. We will have plenty of room to put personal bottles trackside next to the aid station. We will be providing hot drinks in the overnight hours, so consider bringing a thermos or tumbler.
Expect cold and refreshing treats during the heat of the day, plenty of pizza and warm ultra food in the afternoon/evening/overnight, and coffee to keep you awake!
Stay for the awards breakfast after you’re done running for even more great food including real New York bagels and lox!
Timing provided by Mike Melton, MCM Timing. The race will be chip-timed with live timing and a lap readout available. Live web tracking will be available for family and friends.
In keeping with the long tradition of fixed-time races, the Ethan Allen 24 is “go-as-you-please.” You may stop, rest, or leave the course at any time, but the clock keeps running and you must reenter the course at the same place you left it.
