Vermont's Most Scenic Marathon

Every Memorial Day Weekend, more than 7,500 runners, 20,000 spectators and 1,700 volunteers come to Burlington Vermont for the People's United Bank Vermont City Marathon - the second largest marathon in New England and the largest marathon relay in the nation. The clover leaf course design allows specators to easily see runners at various mileage points during the race. The electrifying energy brought from the Taiko drummers, Burlington neighborhoods and the Church Street Marketplace provides a commmunity experience unlike any other marathon event. The course takes runners along the Adirondack and Green Mountain framed shores of Lake Champlain for unmatched scenic beauty. In addition to the marathon, RunVermont organizes a number of running events and community-based youth programs promoting a lifelong commitment to running.

We remain hopeful that RunVermont will be able to present an exciting and meaningful running event during Memorial Day Weekend. While a degree of uncertainty clouds our preparation, we have begun planning an event that would retain all of the most important elements of our flagship race, yet would be modified to accommodate anticipated considerations for large public gatherings.

*We hope to have an update soon* as we continue to monitor the developments in the greater Vermont community.
