COVID-19 Race Updates

The 2021 People's United Bank Vermont City Marathon & Relay will run as a live, in-person event on Sunday, October 24th

Guidance from Vermont state officials, who have provided one of our country's most effective responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, has led us to conclude that moving forward with a large gathering in late May might not be possible. We will turn our attention to presenting the event in the Fall, allowing for more time to prepare a better experience for runners and the community at large.

At this time, only 2020 entrants are able to renew, defer, or transfer registration for October 2021. Should conditions allow, we may open up registration for new runners later this summer. If you are a 2020 entrant and have not received an email on how to take registration action, please email info@runvermont.org.

Registration Renewal or Deferral MUST OCCUR BY AUGUST 1ST, 2021.

Transfers will be accepted between July 15th - July 31st. (*Transfer meaning, if you signed up for marathon but want to move to relay.)

RunVermont will be offering several live and virtual races between now and October. All races will adhere to the most current guidelines from state and public health officials. Travel information can be found below:
