Burlington, Vermont (March 2, 2017) – RunVermont is pleased to announce HOKA ONE ONE® will be the “Official Shoe” of the People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon and all RunVermont events.

HOKA’s performance running shoes have engineered a unique midsole geometry that features a smooth, cushioned ride and inherent stability. “We’re thrilled to be extending our partnership with HOKA, they’ve helped a lot of runners to rediscover the joys of running”, commented Peter Delaney, Executive Director of RunVermont.

“Vermont City Marathon continues to be a first-class event and race weekend,” said Mike McManus, Sports Marketing Manager at HOKA. “We’re pleased to solidify our partnership and level of support in 2017 and beyond.”

“Registrants for the People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon have had several opportunities to win some free shoes and we’ll be extending those same opportunities to our other races throughout the calendar year,” said Delaney. In addition, the People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon Official Pace Team Leaders will be flying the HOKA colors and sporting the latest HOKA technology. All race participants will have the chance to slip on a pair of HOKAs at the Sport and Fitness Expo, scheduled for May 26 & 27 at the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center in Burlington.
