"The best, absolutely the best. Ample provisions for runners, tremendous crowd support, great volunteers, well positioned aid stations. I'll be back"
The Vermont City Marathon & Relay features two relay events, both of which run concurrent with the full Marathon. Runners in all events run alongside each other.
In the 2-Person Relay, two runners evenly split the Marathon distance of 26.2 miles. 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.
Entry into both the 2-person and 3-5 person relays are managed by a lottery. 2-person and 3-5 person relay teams are randomly selected from the lottery entries submitted between February 1 and February 28. Team Captains selected in the lottery register their team members online between March and early May.
