Race Location: Burlington, VT
Race Link: People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon & Relay
Description: Since 1989, the People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon has been held on Memorial Day Weekend. Vermont state officials have provided one of the country’s most effective responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time (February 2021) we feel it is still premature to proceed with a large gathering event in late May. We will instead plan to present the race on October 24th, allowing for more time to prepare a better experience for all runners and the community at large.
Our focus will be creating an event in October where marathoners and relay runners can safely conquer 26.2 miles in a new, two-looped course that includes many of the highlights runners have loved about our course for over 30 years. With many 2020 entrants having deferred to 2021, we will not be immediately accepting new registrations for the October race. Should we find ourselves in a different position later this year, that may change. Follow us on social media to stay up to date!
