The Vermont City Marathon & Relay is a USATF certified course and starts at Battery Park overlooking Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains. The opening miles are run through tree-lined residential streets and Burlington’s pedestrian Marketplace where enthusiastic spectators cheer. On the Northern Connector there are beautiful views of the Green Mountains At the half-way point of the course, runners enter Oakledge Park and run alongside Lake Champlain. The finish and all post-race festivities occur in Waterfront Park where there are thousands of cheering spectators.
The 3-5 Person Relay allows 3, 4, or 5-member teams to divide the full Marathon distance into smaller segments, ranging from 3.1 to 6.5 miles. Congratulations to the Hanson & Doremus team who finished in 213th place, in the upper 30% of their relay field! The team sponsored and raised money for the non-profit Food4Farmers.
