People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon Announces New England Double
Burlington, Vermont (Dec 17, 2015) – For a 2nd year in a row, RunVermont and the Hartford Marathon Foundation, producers of two of New England’s finest marathons, are combining efforts and challenging runners to the “New England Double”. Through a unique partnership, runners who recently completed the Eversource Hartford Marathon in October of 2015 can earn the distinction by completing the People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon on May 29, 2016. And all finishers of the May race will be eligible to complete the NE Double if they finish the Eversource Hartford Marathon on October 8, 2016. Those who register and finish all 52.4 miles will receive a special New England Double Medal and a New England Double Running Jacket. Participants in the Double will also enjoy race weekend perks in a designated location at each event.
Registration is available through runvcm.org or hartfordmarathon.com. Participants must register for each race individually, and be sure to indicate that you’re looking to complete the NE Double.
“We’re excited to continue this collaboration, it was a hit last year and we believe it will give people twice the reason to enjoy New England running in 2016,” says Peter Delaney, Executive Director of RunVermont.
“Combining efforts to offer our running communities fantastic race experiences in the spring and fall seasons is a natural collaboration that we’re thrilled to be part of,” said Beth Shluger, Executive Director of the Hartford Marathon Foundation and Race Director of the Eversource Hartford Marathon.
