2017 Rasputitsa Spring Classic

Rasputitsa Spring Classic

April 27 2019
East Burke, Vermont, USA

asputitsa is Russian for “mud season”—which gives you a pretty accurate preview of this 45-mile race for bragging rights in northern Vermont. In keeping with the Russian theme, the highlight of the course is “Cyberia,” a Class IV road that a former race participant described as “a scary backwoods where at any time a Yeti or Bengal tiger may jump out of the woods, bludgeon you with a blunt object, and either leave you for dead or drag you back into the woods for a nice little Saturday brunch.” Need more recommendations?

“Total sufferfest,” pronounces Olympian Lea Davison, who pre-rode the course in February as a fundraiser for Little Bellas, the nonprofit she co-runs with her sister Sabra. Make it through the race, though, and you’ll be privy to poutine, maple-syrup shots, Vermont beers, and live music.
