The Maple Leaf Half Marathon is returning to Manchester and the mountains! Beginning in the late 1970s, the Maple Leaf had grown in stature and appeal, attracting world-class athletes and crowds of over 1,300 runners. The brainchild of local restaurateur, Guy Thomas (Zoey’s), the Maple Leaf was nationally famous, being seen as a tune-up for the New York Marathon. In time, the race was organized by a number of other individuals and groups, but faded from the local scene a few years ago.
Now, the Manchester & the Mountains Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Battenkill Valley Runners, Stratton Mountain, and the Manchester Lions Club are partnering together to revive this major attraction to our fall calendar of events. The goal is to revive the race to its former glory, making Manchester the center of New Englandâ€™s running interest every September and return the Maple Leaf into first class event.
