Registration for the 27th Annual Vermont City Marathon opens October 1, 2014. We expect to host over 8000 runners for the 2015 race, which will take place on Sunday, May 24th, 2015. And with more than 40% of those runners coming from out of state, there may be a few folks looking for a little Vermont hospitality. Requests from runners for lodging information start with the first registrations. The time for you to connect to the event is now! Here is how:
• Listing with active links on the Vermont City Marathon website • Listing with active link on the marathon’s mobile app
After a runner registers, we send a confirmation email with a link to all participating hotels on our website. We ask them to book accommodations early and to identify themselves as marathon participants. Let them know that they can find accommodations with you by listing your information now.
For the 2015 marathon we expect 99% of our runners to register online. Our website, www.runvcm.org, is constantly updated with vital information. Marathon participants see it as a great ongoing resource for race news.
As part of this partnership, we supply a “Welcome Runner” banner to be displayed in your hotel over marathon weekend, along with a supply of Spectators Guides for your guests. In most hotel locations we will also send a shuttle at or near your hotel on race morning to bring the runners to the start. Please note that non-participating hotels will not be receiving shuttle services in 2015 and as a service to the runners this will be noted in the information provided to them by RunVermont.
