What is your favorite way to say, “I love you?” Perhaps a gift, your time, a date night out, or a special card with a heartfelt message is the way to go. If you love the outdoors and enjoy cross-country skiing in particular, why not try the Romance Half-Marathon at Rikert Nordic Center as your next “date?” Nothing says, “I love you” like a 25km race!
Rikert Nordic Center is in the heart of Vermont’s Green Mountains and has over 50km of trails on the Bread Loaf Campus of Middlebury College. The trails wind through peaceful forests, past sparkling creeks and the surroundings are simply serene and peaceful—it is the perfect setting for a half-marathon race. You can sign up to ski this race alone or try it with your loved one—it would be one way to create a wonderful memory! There will be hot blueberry soup offered out on the trails and of course; the end of the race will be full of fun activities, great food and an awards ceremony.
This outdoor center is only a short 20-minute jaunt from Swift House Inn, which makes our bed and breakfast a convenient home away from home. Relax and unwind in the comfort of your own luxurious, private room after the race and enjoy a delicious homemade breakfast in the morning—the perfect way to refuel after a day on the trails.
