The Northeast Kingdom Marathon

A FREE, USATF certified 13.1 mile half marathon and 26.2-mile full marathon course, with professional chip timing and port-o-lets. A beautiful setting, a memorable weekend of events, and the opportunity to support a community.

The Northeast Kingdom Marathon is a FREE USATF certified self-supported half/full marathon designed to support Island Pond – a small former railroad town nestled deep within the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Following the lead of the innovative Millinocket Marathon – runners who participate are asked to be generous and support the Island Pond community and surrounding region in every way possible.

The act of giving can empower, uplift, and restore. We think that’s worth running 26.2 miles for
