The Biggest Loser RunWalk Killington, Vermont
Town of Killington

The Biggest Loser RunWalk Killington Half Marathon/5K courses each have a twist! Participants run/walk down the mountain, then take the ski lift back up and continue along with breathtaking views of Killington Peak, the second highest peak in Vermont. The 5K course goes through beautiful downtown Killington while the half marathon route, great for someone's first half marathon, travels along rustic wooded roads with stunning views of the Green Mountains. Afterwards kick back with family and friends and celebrate at the post-race concert featuring former "Biggest Loser" contestant and Nashville recording artist, Dan Evans at Killington Resort's Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar, or enjoy the lush landscape during a gondola ride to Killington Peak. Even Packet Pick-Up the day before the race is a party (see below)! Why would you miss this?
