Destination Vermont 2014

Destination Vermont Marathons 2014

3rd installment of my 50 state series on Marathon and Half Marathon races in The US.

Vermont is a small state with a population of just 626,741 as reported in the 2010 Census. Vermont has over 9,200 mostly beautiful square miles and offers many opportunities for hiking, cycling and running. The ample woods and streams provide many opportunities for hunting and fishing as well. The state web site lists a wide variety of outdoor recreation activities, but does not have any information on running activities.

I only found four marathons and twenty half-marathons, which is typical for a state of this size.

The big race in Vermont is the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon and Relay. This race takes place on Sunday May 25th and had over 2,600 participants in 2013. This race has a two-day EXPO where runners can pick up their bib and shop with over 70 local and national exhibitors. All Marathon and 2-person relay runners receive a medal.

Like Boston or Hartford, Burlington has a full Marathon Weekend including the 2 day EXPO, pasta dinner and post race festivities. On Saturday they have the Mini Marathon for kids with distances of 1/2 mile, 1 mile and 2 miles.

    I’m running the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon! I can’t wait to post the recap. {Read: I can’t wait to wrap up training because this weather is making me miserable.} Thanks for posting these!

      I’m glad you liked this. I can’t believe we are havng another cold and rainy day.
      I ran last night and it was about 40F.
      My first post-Boston run, it felt pretty good.
      Today I’m signing up for the Bay of Fundy International Marathon!

        This is just despicable. Honestly. Tonight’s run will be sad. Or on a treadmill. Even sadder. Bay of Fundy????!! Cool!!!!

          It’s something like a 9 hour drive from Boston!!! I need to recruit a co-pilot for this one.

            Trying to recruit my sister. They have a 10K also. I’d be happy if she just rode shot gun. She does PX90 but I don’t think that involved much/any running., pub-4167727599129474, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0
