Distance: Marathon · Marathon Relay
2021 events have been moved from May to October. The race is held annually on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Runners in the Vermont City Marathon can compete in the full marathon, on a two-person relay team running half marathons, or on a three-to-five person relay team running legs ranging from 3.1 to 6.2 miles.
The Vermont City Marathon is a Boston Marathon Qualifying Race. We automatically provide BAA with our results after the race and is a state championship race.
As the largest one day sporting event in Vermont, we often have to go outside the state to acquire the level of support required for the race. Course barricades come from out of state as do many other supplies in the quantities we need to support all the runners. We also spend a significant amount of money for tents and venue rentals, permitting fees and printing collateral materials, training materials and shirts for the volunteers.
