Manchester Center, VT (PRWEB) September 07, 2011
The annual E quinox Financial Advisors Maple Leaf Half Marathon & 5K run is drawing participants from more than 30 states and Canada to an exhilarating race up hill and down dale throughout verdant southwestern Vermont on Saturday, September 10. Nearly 1,000 race contestants have entered—more than ever before!—and there is still time to come and join the fun and in doing so, help Vermont surmount the effects of tropical storm Irene.
By coming to Manchester and the Mountains (which weathered tropical storm Irene fairly well), visitors help bolster the economy, lift a few waterlogged spirits, and enjoy the beginnings of fall in a beautiful setting. In addition, profits from the Maple Leaf go right towards helping area non-profits, who are now more than ever in need of support.
A Friday night dinner at The Perfect Wife Tavern begins the festivities with a menu of mouth-watering selections from Chef-Owner Amy Chamberlain (Vermont Chef of the Year in 2010) that will fortify every participant. The weather predictions are for a gorgeous Vermont race day, and there will be a celebration with food and beverages, music and awards immediately following the race. What is not to love about this event?!
Come to Vermont, help the state overcome Irene, support non-profits, get exercise and fresh mountain air along with great food before and a party after! Register for the race at the Manchester Chamber ahead of time or at the race on the morning of run. Get more information at the Maple Leaf Half Marathon website or visit the Maple Leaf Run Facebook page. In addition to the support of Equinox Financial Advisors, the race is also sponsored by the Spiral Press Café, The Perfect Wife Restaurant, and MVP Healthcare. Vermont looks forward to welcoming and celebrating with many happy new faces on Saturday.
