The L.L.Bean Flannel 5K – Burlington kicks off at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, October 21st with packet pickup in the L.L.Bean store located at 101 Cherry Street, Burlington, VT 05401. The race starts at 9:00 a.m. in Leddy Park and finishes back near the store in Battery Park, so we’ll be shuttling runners from the store to the start line from 8:00 a.m. to 8:50 a.m. There’s plenty of street parking and public lots near Battery Park and the store, but please arrive no later than 7:30 a.m. to ensure you have time to park, check-in, and ride the shuttle to the start line. Packet pickup is from 7:30 – 8:40 AM. Don’t miss the last bus!
The Burlington race is limited to 600 runners so don’t wait too long to sign up!
This race features a fairly flat, point-to-point course that is 90% on the Burlington Greenway Bike Path! The Greenway is the crown jewel of the local parks system and is an immensely popular attraction all year long. It consists of eight miles of paved path with aggregate shoulders for runners and walkers, and runs through many other parks along Lake Champlain. The course starts at Leddy Park and continues south along Lake Champlain past North Beach Park and then to Waterfront Park. From here, you’ll run back to Battery Park for the finish and then head back to the store for the after-party!
We’ll have pizza, bananas, and drinks for you, but as if that wasn’t awesome enough, we’ll also be giving away 38 L.L.Bean gift certificates (ranging from $25 to $100) to randomly-selected runners!
