More Good News For Olympic Trials Aspirants

Credit where it is due:
I just wanted to pass a note along to let friends with fast running friends know about a bonus that the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon will be offering this year. The KBVCM will be giving $750 to every American male and female who gets an Olympic Trials qualifying time at our race. For those of you who don't know, the KBVCM is potentially a fast course with a net downhill of 100 feet. Weather here in May during the race is usually about 55-65 degrees. We are hoping this incentive creates our fastest race ever this year with solid competition for those up and coming US marathoners with aspirations to make it to Houston.

In addition to the OT bonus money, we also offer a Course Record bonus of $1000, with current course records of 2:17:03 for men and 2:35:02 for women. In the case of multiple runners of a single gender breaking our course record in any given year, the Course Record bonus will be paid to the first place individual.

The KeyBank Vermont City Marathon takes place on Sunday, May 30, 2010. If you are interested in running or know someone who is, please send them our way. Travel money and hotel are available for some. The contact in our office is Joe Connelly at joe@runvermont.org.
