BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Runners will be lacing up for a big race in the Mad River Valley this weekend. The Mad Marathon is in its third year. The goal is to host a marathon dedicated to sustainability with proceeds going to help preserve rivers, forests and trails.

Organizers teamed up with 1% For the Planet. The group is based in Waitsfield and encourages companies to invest 1 percent of their annual revenues to help the environment.
