2024 VCM Course Map_No Date_V2



Keep in mind that the X and Y axis of the course elevation chart tend to over-emphasize both the uphills and downhills. The M&T Bank Vermont City Marathon course is mostly flat with some rolling sections. The biggest uphill, mile 6.0-7.1 and 19.1-20.2, gains about 120' of elevation, and is followed by a flat mile. The VCM has traditionally been one of the fastest marathons in the country, with far more sub 2:30, sub 3:00, and sub 4:00 finishes than would be expected at a race of this size.
