Waterfront Park, Burlington VT

Welcome to our 15th Annual Half Marathon Unplugged that runs along the Burlington Greenway (bike path), which is adjacent to Lake Champlain with the Adirondacks in the distance. Unplugged is an organized, basic services race -- in other words, No Frills, No Hills! You won’t see 30,000 spectators like the Vermont City Marathon, or hear bands along the way, but you WILL experience a scenic, very flat, half marathon race.

Given likely in-person race restrictions due to COVID-19, our plan is to use a similar format from our October 2020 event. We anticipate a single day of racing with start waves of 200 entrants at 30-minute intervals commencing at 8:00AM. The start and finish will be at Waterfront Park and the course will be out-and-back along the Burlington Bike Path with a two-mile loop in Colchester midway through the race.

Relay Teams

Not up for the entire 13.1 miles? Then we have an option for you -- our 2-Person Relay where teammates get to split the half marathon distance however they'd like. Runner #1 can tag Runner #2 anywhere along the course although we expect Leddy Park in Burlington and Airport Park in Colchester to be popular. You decide as a team where you'd like that exchange to take place. Both teammates need to select the same start wave time during registration. Please note that relay teams are responsible for transporting runners to and from their exchange points. Check out our Course Description here.
