FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Registration Opens Monday for the 2012 KeyBank Vermont City Marathon
(Burlington, VT): Registration for the largest running event in Northern New England opens on Monday, October 3, at 6 am, nearly a full month earlier than in past years. The Burlington, Vermont-based KeyBank Vermont City Marathon and Relay was a sold out event in 2011, with 3600 marathoners and 4500 relay runners participating.
According to RunVermont Executive Director Peter Delaney, the earlier date provides the opportunity for runners closed out of the April Boston Marathon to register for the Burlington race in May.
"Our marathon continues to grow." said Delaney. "That is due to both the race’s reputation as a high-quality, well-run event and the exceptional community that supports this event . We are a destination for runners seeking a spring marathon and once they come, they want to come back for more of the Burlington experience."
The 2012 event is scheduled for Sunday, May 27. Registration and full details are offered online at www.runvcm.org. Marathoners who register early enjoy a discounted fee of $85. Registration for the relay lottery opens January 1, 2012. For more information, contact Jen Savas, registration Director, 802-863-8412 or email@example.com.
