Get Ready for the 2017 Vermont City Marathon


This Sunday, Burlington will host one of it’s largest annual events. Kicking off at 7:00 around 8000 runners will begin the 2017 Vermont City Marathon. As you make your way down to enjoy the action, please be aware of some parking information within the downtown core.

First, before you drive downtown, remember that many local hotels operate shuttles to carry visitors to the race starting location. Due to the activity with the downtown core it is smart to avoid using your car, if possible. Bikers can take advantage of Local Motion’s popular valet parking program.

If you do decide to drive, free parking is available within a quarter of a mile of the race start area. Meter spaces are free across the city on Sundays. Please do not park at Waterfront Park or Oakledge Park and be aware of street closures across the city during the race.

Throughout the summer construction will be ongoing at the College Street garage. Unfortunately, that means the facility will not be available for drivers on Sunday.

We will continue to provide updates on, as well as, on Twitter and Facebook.
