It takes over 1700 volunteers to make the magic of M&T Bank Vermont City Marathon happen. And many of those volunteers staff our AMAZING aid stations!

Aid Station INFO

Locations we are looking for groups to take over are:

Beltline South- Route 127 at mile 4.3/ 7.8

Staniford Firehouse- North Ave at mile 20.3

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! 2 have only Food, 1 has candy (Battery Park) and 18 have water and Gatorade and 6 stations are Elite fluids.

3325 gallons of water

176 gallons of ultra-concentrated Gatorade endurance formula- mixed with water on course

48,000 Gatorade cups

380 volunteers

A day in the life of the Aid Stations:

3:00am - the morning of the race, Aid Station supplies begin to get delivered by the Quartermaster team and Vermont Pure Delivery Truck

7:15am - the first Aid Station Crews are arriving at their location and begin setting up

The race starts at 8:00am

2:00pm - the last Aid Station Crews are cleaning up the last of the cups and closing down
