The KeyBank Vermont City Marathon, Running to You May 25

It’s that time of year again! Burlington’s own popular annual marathon will take place this coming Sunday, right before Memorial Day. We’re fully booked for the entire weekend, and some of our guests coming in are marathon runners. We wish them the best of luck and we’re delighted to have been chosen as their home base for some important pre- and post-marathon R&R!


For those of you not running and simply coming to Burlington to enjoy a long weekend on Champlain’s sunny shores, make sure you take a look at the marathon route on the website. A lot of roads around the city, from University Heights to the Old North End to the bike paths, will have restricted traffic or will be closed entirely, both to bikes and cars.

 For our marathoners, here’s a short and fun informative video brought to you by our local news channel WPTZ and the experts over at Fletcher Allen, just in case you need some quick tips on how to prevent injury both before and on race day.


We’re excited for you runners to finally see all your hard work pay off at the finish line, and to those of you coming for the holiday weekend, take some time to cheer along the route while you’re strolling Sunday morning!
