A fun, multi-sport event that tours through Rochester, Hancock and Granville, Vermont. First staged in 2011 just weeks after Tropical Storm Irene, the Disas-Tour was created as a way to boost community morale, celebrate the resilience of the towns, and raise money for flood relief. Organization of the race was transferred to the Rochester/Randolph Area Sports Trails Alliance (RASTA) four years ago. Proceeds from DisasTour VI will benefit the White River Valley communities through the RASTA Valley Trail Project and the local food shelf.
