History of the Round Church Women's Run
The Round Church Women's Run is the oldest women's only race in Vermont. It started in 1979 when the number of women runners was increasing, to help encourage more to join the sport. It was also the first race to have regular age groups for women. Prior to the first race, there was often only two women age groups - 0-24 and 25+. The 25 year old split was to separate high school and college runners from "housewives". (This is how the a 10/26/1979 Burlington Free Press article quoted women over age 25 when talking about running!) Women's running has certainly come a long way since 1979. Some people have questioned whether we still need a women's only race - the answer appears to be yes. The race still attracts many new runners, including  many under the age of 13 involved in various girl running programs. Additionally, it is nice for the fast women to be the first across the finish line and lead a race with no one in front of them. 

The Round Church Women's Run has had many directors over the years: Dianne Schullenberger, Amy Valentine, John Scheer, Andrea Houlihan, Deb Tirrito, Michelle Everleth, Kasie Enman, Martha Keenan, Lori Hennessey, Sylvia Frisbee and others. Thanks to all for making this a quality race!
