The Vermont City Marathon and Relay is starting earlier in the day this year — 7am. I’m sure that the runners will appreciate the change especially after last year’s race was cut short due to extreme heat. Many runners were disappointed to learn that even though the end was in sight, they race was over.
Race day is Sunday, May 28, 2017 in Burlington, VT. This popular race fills quickly so you’ll want to add a note to your calendar for January 16. That’s when relay team registration opens. Here’s a quick link to the VCM Web site.
Bring the family to stay the week at one of our lakefront vacation homes during race week. Our homes are 30 minutes from Burlington making it very convenient for race day. Enjoy the rest of your stay kayaking on Lake Champlain, watching sunsets across the bay, roasting marshmallows over a lakeside campfire or just dropping a fishing line off the dock. Why not reward the entire family for all the hard work that went into marathon training and running?!
