The Covered Bridges Half Marathon was first run in 1992. Race founder David Chioffi and a group of community members got together to create a half marathon along some of the best running routes around Woodstock, Vermont. The course was unique in that it incorporated four area covered bridges, with runners passing through two of them.
The race is organized exclusively by volunteers, under the corporate umbrella of CBHM, Inc., a non-profit corporation formed specifically to organize running events and donate the proceeds to charity. The race donates more than $30,000 each year to local non-profit groups focused on youth activities and youth sports in the Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire. In recent years, groups have used the race to inspire volunteers to seek pledges for their respective causes, raising as much as $130,000.
Each year the Haven has 50 registration spots for the race. We gather a team of runners who fundraise for us by raising sponsorships dollars. Come join our team, run for a great cause, meet new friends and go home with the most stylish team shirt on the market today!
