Comments: Our former President and great friend to volkssporting, Charlotte Phillips, has allowed us to run Middlebury again in 2017. This has been one of our favorites for 20 years. The Middlebury Inn opened in 1827 and serves a wonderful afternoon tea. John Deere, inventor, was a student at Middlebury. Many buildings in town and at college on NHR. 88 Main Street was a stop on the Underground RR. Bridges on both 5k and 10k. No pets permitted in buildings, and only part of the route is wheelchair accessible.
