Every Memorial Day Weekend, more than 8,000 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 course takes runners along the Adirondack and Green Mountain framed shores of Lake Champlain for unmatched scenic beauty.
