It takes over 1700 volunteers to make the magic of People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon happen. And many of those volunteers staff our AMAZING aid stations!

Currently we have a need for groups to fill two Aid Stations. Bike Path Leddy Park Aid Station (16 volunteers) and Ice Pops- Bike Path New North End (6 people)

Volunteering at an Aid Station is a great team-building experience and a  fun way to earn community service hours.

If your group is interested in adopting an Aid Station or for more information please e-mail

How many volunteers does it take to run a Marathon Aid Station?  10-35 people. It really depends on the location of the Aid Station. Aid Stations located earlier in the course need more volunteers, because more runners are coming through at the same time. How many Aid Stations are on Course? 20 total.  2 with food and Clif products, 1 has candy (Battery Park) and 18 have water and Gatorade and 6 stations are Elite fluids. Aid Stations by the numbers: 3325 gallons of water 176 gallons of ultra-concentrated Gatorade endurance formula- mixed with water on course 48,000 Gatorade cups 380 volunteers
