About This Activity

This marathon is a picturesque point to point journey through beatiful southern Vermont.  The race begins at Bennington College, a small private liberal arts school, heads through the small town of North Bennington before entering into the back roads of Shaftsbury.  The half-way point is at the Federated Church in East Arlington and heads toward the Chiselville Covered Bridge and onto Sunderland Hill Rd with spectacular views of mountains and meadows while protected by a canopy of trees.  The course takes you through Manchester's back roads before emerging onto downtown Manchester.  The course concludes with a run through the downtown area of Manchester and on to Hunter Park finishing at Riley Rink with plenty of amenities including showers for all participants.
