A New England ‘classic’ and a long-time favorite for 22 years returns to Vermont, the Green Mountain State. Annually since 1985, hundreds have flocked to beautiful Lake Morey to take the ‘Fairlee Great’ challenge…experience the area’s charm…and yes, satisfy their ravenous appetites at the HUGE post-race BBQ! Tradition continues…join us…the race of your summer awaits. See for yourself what athletes for years have been raving about! Swim start field limit: 650 entrants.

During our two-year absence from Fairlee in 2007 and 2008, Time Out! got ‘hammered’ with e-mails begging us to put Fairlee back on the schedule. When you race here this summer, you’ll see what the ‘cry’ was all about:

3/4-mile swim: triangular design in clear, refreshing Lake Morey. Water normally in the low to mid-70s.

17-mile bike: an out-and-back course newly tested in 2006 and applauded by the racers! Rolling terrain through typical-Vermont farmland. Several long and flat ‘let-er-rip’ stretches mixed in with two short ‘Fairlee typical’ out-of-saddle climbs.

5-mile run: a shaded, rolling loop around Lake Morey. Course volunteer are the attendees of Camp Lanikila and Aloha. Are they enthusiastic? You betcha!
