2022 VT100 Withdraw due to COVID/Vaccination requirements
The Vermont 100 Race Committee has decided to mandate COVID vaccinations at the 2022 Vermont 100 event for all participants. This means that every runner, rider, volunteer, pacer, spectator, and crew member must be vaccinated for COVID in order to be at this year’s event (including access to the start/finish area, aid stations, and crew stops). The definition of COVID vaccination means the individual must have received 2 standard vaccine doses and a booster dose (if eligible).
The Vermont 100 course relies on over 60 private land owners giving us permission to use their property for the race. The start/finish area, camping field, registration area, numerous aid stations, and 70-miles of our course are all on private land. The event also passes through 9 small Vermont communities, while introducing participants from across the country (and even internationally) to their local stores, land, gas stations, restaurants, and accommodations. Out of an abundance of caution for these land owners and communities, the VT100 Race Committee voted to institute the vaccination requirement so that we are able to host the race this summer.
We understand that this announcement may be disconcerting to some participants, and we apologize for those who are upset by the vaccination requirement.
Due to this announcement coming after registration, we are offering a one-time option for runners currently on the start list to withdraw and receive a refund of their entry fee if they are unable/unwilling to comply with this requirement. This option will be available through February 23, 2022.
