Unplugged Half Marathon keeps growing in Burlington

By  | 

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) More than 1,000 runners made their way to Burlington for the "Unplugged Half Marathon."

The 13.1-mile course started at the airport park and finished at Switchback Brewery. The race has grown over the years and organizers say it's become more than just an opener for the Vermont City Marathon.

"This race really started as something people just really getting ready for the Vermont City Marathon, used to be 200 people. It was just a long run with some benefits," said Jess Cover of Run Vermont.

With a little more than 40 days left until the Vermont City Marathon, organizers say they are still looking for volunteers.
