Registration opening soon!
This family-friendly run takes place alongside the beautiful Lamoille River in the heart of our village!
All proceeds benefit the Fairfax Community Center, with the goal of creating a multi-generational community space in the village.
Participants can choose from a 5K Run, a 5K Walk, or a 10K Run and will receive a cooked to order post-race omelet!
There will also be a 1K Kids Run for runners 13 and under!
August 1st, 2020
Race starts 9AM
Starting line at the United Church of Fairfax
What’s new this year?
- We will have a heavier focus on the fundraising goal of the Egg Run, giving participants wider options to donate and support the Fairfax Community Center – as well as incentives to do so!
- The 10k race course has changed slightly, due to the absence of a bridge on the old route. We will return to that route in 2021.
- We will have a shuttle from the parking lot at BFA Fairfax to the race start / finish line.
The 5K Course is the same as previous years – an out and back mostly flat run to the Fairfax Falls dam. This is appealing to recreational runners and walkers out for fun, or to speedsters seeking a personal best!
The 10K Course this year is also an out and back, but continues past the dam up a large hill, followed by a flat stretch past the scenic River Berry Farm before turning around.
All roads are either asphalt or hard packed dirt surfaces and are closed to vehicular traffic during the event.
What does my participation support?
The Egg Run has always been a great fundraiser for community projects in Fairfax. It helped build a playground, our recreational fields, the community recreation path, and now it’s supporting the development of our Community Center!
All proceeds from this event help fund improvements to bring this building on Main Street up to compliance for large public assembly. We are closer than ever before to achieving the collective vision of a multi-generational community space in Fairfax, and that’s why we’re calling on you to help us clear the last few hurdles!
This year we’ll be enabling fundraising and donations for Egg Run participants, and we’ll be announcing prizes are rewards for fundraising as soon as our registration is available!
