                      ABOUT THE RACE


The Seventh Annual Green Street School TULIP TROT 5K run/walk and .5 mile Sprout Sprint is a family-friendly run and fitness walk that starts and ends at Green Street School in Brattleboro, Vermont.  The route is 3.1 miles of road and wooded trails that winds through neighborhood streets before entering the scenic Retreat Trails at the base of Brattleboro's famous ski jump. Younger children can enjoy a 1/2 mile Lil Sprout fun run around the school's campus.


After the race enjoy music, refreshments and good times for all.  If you choose not to run or walk, come anyway to cheer the runners on.


                 About the Green Street School PTO


The 5k event is sponsored by the Green Street School Parent Teacher Organization.  The PTO is committed to promoting a healthy community while supporting wellness and fitness programs. The 5K is the culminating event to an 8 week long running and fitness program founded in 2011 and spearheaded by a GSS parent with the help of several dedicated parent volunteers. The "Run Club" (now thriving in its 7th year!) was initially funded by a generous grant from USA Track and Field Foundation and designed to promote healthy habits and encourage kids to get out, exercise and maintain a fun and healthy fitness routine. This event promises to be fun-filled while raising much needed funds to support the school's fitness and enrichment programs.
