October 20 was the deadline for deferrals and event transfers. As a result of our live race restart protocols there will be no race-day registration. For questions and concerns, please email us at Like most folks, we’re now working remotely therefore the phones in our office will not be attended on a regular basis.

1 Main Street, Burlington VT

Welcome to our 14th annual Unplugged Half Marathon 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. This year's race format will be different. The race will be held over 2 days: October 24th and 25th, with 4 start waves each day. During the registration process you can select your preferred day and wave start time.

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. Please note that relay teams are responsible for transporting runners to and from their exchange points. Check out our Course Description here.
