About The Northeast Kingdom Marathon

The Northeast Kingdom Marathon in Island Pond, Vermont is one of the most scenic and challenging half marathons in the country. This year’s race is happening on September 16th, 2023. It’s a great opportunity for runners to experience some of the most beautiful scenery that Vermont has to offer.

The route for this 13-mile run takes you through some of the most picturesque spots that make up this special corner of New England. You’ll start out at Lake Willoughby and then head up into the hills around Island Pond before looping back around towards East Burke and finishing at Lake Memphremagog. The course features rolling hills, winding roads, and plenty of stunning views as you make your way along it.

September can be a tricky time weather-wise in New England but runners should expect mild temperatures during this period with highs typically around 70°F (21°C). There may be occasional showers so it pays to dress appropriately if running this race!

This event attracts quite a large crowd – there are usually several hundred participants taking part each year – so you won’t feel alone out on the course! Everyone is very friendly too; locals often come out to cheer for participants as they go by which makes things even more special than usual.

In addition to being a well-organised event which offers an enjoyable running experience, what really sets apart The Northeast Kingdom Marathon from other races is its setting: it’s not every day that you get to take part in something like this surrounded by such breathtaking scenery!
