The 4th Annual Front Porches Half Marathon will take place in Rockingham on September 30, 2017. The race route will again showcase our scenic river views and historic front porches. Runners will begin in Bellows Falls, run to the Village of Saxtons River and through Vermont Academy’s campus, ending at the Waypoint Center in Bellows Falls where they can celebrate their finishes with friends and family. We will be providing food, drinks and entertainment before and during the award ceremony. We hope to continue this annual event, drawing Vermont runners and out of state runners alike to embrace and explore our community at the height of its Fall glory, year after year.
Our goal is to raise money to benefit local drug prevention efforts, with priority for those programs designed to target juvenile health and wellness education, raising awareness of the risks of drug use. Our hope is that this event will become an opportunity for all of us to come together to raise money to help combat the problems facing our community that are caused by drugs.
