Race Information

In central European culture, Krampus is a half goat, half demon monster that punishes misbehaving children during Christmas time. For many years, central European countries have celebrated this holiday with Krampuslauf ( Krampus Run) where people dress up as Krampus and run throughout out the streets of town. This tradition to comes to Vermont with Race Mozey partnering with Vermont Adaptive and presenting the Krampuslauf 50K, 10K, and 5K at Suicide Six ski resort in Pomfret VT.

The race will consist of trails throughout the ski resort with the 5K loop ending at the top of the mountain and runners will take the ski lift back down. There will also be a 10K loop which will continue up and down the mountain. 50K runners will do the 10K loop 5 times. The elevation for each length are: 5K has 1200’ of gain; 10K 2000’ of gain; and, the 50k 10,000’ of gain.

Participants for the 5K are encouraged to dress up as Krampus for a more traditional Krampuslauf and there will be prizes for best Krampus costumes.
