Registration Opens Saturday

It took some time, but the race course is now sufficiently buried in snow. . . I guess that means it must be time to open race registration.

Registration opens this Saturday, February 15th at 7:00am.


This year all of our registration is through RunReg. We’ll post the registration link on Saturday or go directly to



2020 Race Registration Opens February 15

Registration opens Saturday, February 15 at 7:00am.

Yes, we have changed things again! Change is good! Our goal is to maximize the number of happy Sleepy Hollow Mtn Racers while keeping our focus on the important things: spicing up the burrito bar, enhancing our Star Wars costumes, and making mud!

The first 300 to register get a spot on the start line, no refunds, no waitlist.

Thank you for bearing with us as we work to find a balance between race directing duties and our busy lives.

Head on over to our Registration page for more info.

2020 Race Date

Mark your calendars and start your training! The 2020 edition of the Sleepy Hollow Mtn Race will be on Sunday, April 26th with our traditional noon start time. We’ll be posting updates about what to expect for registration, the course, etc. in the coming weeks.

Results and Thank You

First off we want to say Thank you to all of our volunteers! You come an help at this race year after muddy rainy year. We could not do it without you.

Thank you racers! We hope you had fun. Good luck getting your shoes dried out. Maybe next year it will be dry.

One final thank you to Kyle (SkiRack) and Jen (Solomon) for bringing all the great Solomon demo shoes and the SkiRack tent to keep our finish line crew dry.

Driving and Weather Update

We are recommending that people access Sleepy Hollow from the Huntington end of Sherman Hollow Road. Swamp Road, coming from Hinesburg, is currently very… swampy.
Please also be aware that there is a flood watch in effect throughout the entire state of Vermont for Friday night through Sunday. While Sleepy Hollow is not expected to be directly affected, there is the potential for road closures on your drive here. Two good sources of information to keep an eye on:

Course Conditions – Updated

UPDATED Thursday 4/18: The ground is softening. The first climb up Butternut Cabin Trail is looking to rival the mud pit conditions of 2014. The frost has still not worked it’s way out of the ground entirely, so there is potential for creating sink holes with your feet on the ski trail sections of the course. This can largely be avoided by staying on the edges of the trail where there is more sure footing. There are currently three sections of course (Liberty Meadow Trail, lower Tina Turner, and bits of Molly’s Meadow) that are holding onto a crust of snow, but it is possible to run on and around. The single track and southern-facing exposed sections of trail are in the best shape, and provide some respite from the slop. With temps in the upper 60s and forecasted rain, expect foot sucking mud. Tie those shoe laces tight!

Photos from some morning course marking/fun running on Wednesday 4/17. Some green, some snow, some sink holes. The forecast calls for more mud. [Top left, Eli Enman struggling to make it through his 42nd birthday – Happy Birthday old man!]

Withdrawal Deadline Reminder

Just a friendly reminder that if you need to withdraw, tomorrow, Friday April 12, is the last day to do so if you want to get a refund. We don’t know why you would want to though – it’s shaping up to be an epic course condition year!
