Approximately 800 runners, many traveling with family and friends, are expected in Middlebury this weekend for the eighth edition of the Middlebury Maple Run – The Sweetest Half. The 13.1-mile half-marathon running race starts at 9 a.m. on Sunday, May 1, in the parking lot behind Porter Hospital.
Event organizers added a new feature or two to the event every year. New this year:
• The oldest male and female finishers will receive a bottle of WhistlePig rye whiskey (bottled in Shoreham) for their efforts.
