Welcome to the 2012

KeyBank Vermont City Marathon & Relay! Welcome To The KeyBank Vermont City Marathon & relay Last year a wise friend told me that “no two races are ever the same.” Those words ring true no matter what your perspective: runner, supporter, volunteer or even a member of the RunVermont team. Each race, big or small, takes on a personality and a character unique unto itself. The most unique characteristic of this race is that everyone who touches this event walks away with a sense of ownership. The volunteers who serve you this weekend undoubtedly feel a sense of ownership as many have been with us for years. Our local businesses look forward to marathon weekend so they can welcome the runners into their respective establishments. Our support agencies, including the police and public safety organizations and the members of our medical team, enjoy the opportunity to use their skills to provide a positive outcome for all. The event’s sponsors are eager to enhance our race to ensure that you will remember this experience for a long time to come. And then there are the spectators: your family, your friends and a whole lot of enthusiastic friends-to-be. They’ll be out there cheering for you, whether you’ve met them already or not. They will yell for you at the start, they will hoot and holler as you run through the Church Street Marketplace (both times) and they’ll be waiting for your arrival in the South Cove neighborhood as you approach the midpoint. They will shout encouragement as you make the “assault on Battery” and they’ll be out in force as you navigate your way through the North End neighborhoods. They will line up all along the bike path as you head into the last few miles and they will scream until they have no voice left as you make your way into Waterfront Park, to cross the long sought after finish line. Simply stated, our spectators are spectacular and they’re going to make you feel like a rock star. You will feel like this race is all about you, because all of us here in Vermont want this race to be YOUR race. Good luck, we wish you all a personal best and most importantly, a safe race to all!

chronotrack & participation

Policies Our ability to provide accurate timing and essential medical assistance when necessary depends on YOU. Follow these steps to help us serve you. Your timing device for this event is the ChronoTrack B-Tag: a single use tag on the back of your bib. The ChronoTrack Tag provides runners with accurate race timing. Through a computerized system, your tag transmitter will be read at the start, finish and intermediate locations. You must cross all locations and complete the official course to get an official time. You must wear the ChronoTrack Tag provided in your packet. Do not trade bibs with anyone. Your time corresponds with your bib number. Both members of the 2-person relay have the B-Tag on the back of their bibs. Only the last leg of the 3-5 person relay wears the B-Tag. There will be video checkpoints and volunteers checking race numbers along the course. Failure to appear at video checkpoints may result in disqualification. In order to receive an accurate time, please confirm your bib is: » Clearly visible on the front of the torso » Unaltered and unmodified (Do not fold or wrinkle) » Pinned in all four corners » Not covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.) » No Tag, No Time. No Exception.

Need Info?

Look for our Park Ambassador volunteers wearing bright orange t-shirts in Battery Park and Waterfront Park. Park Ambassadors have all the info you need to find your way throughout the parks.

Marathon Etiquette Good manners are the rule on every marathon course. Please be aware of other participants while enjoying the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon. Here are a few “rules of the road”: » When you slow down for food and water, or if you need to walk off a cramp, move to the side of the course. People behind you may not want to slow down. » We strongly discourage headphones due to safety concerns. If you wear headphones, wear ones that allow you to hear your surroundings. » Discard cups and trash in the receptacles provided.

The Race Course Our USATF certified course starts at Battery Park, overlooking Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains. The opening miles are run through tree-lined residential streets and Burlington’s pedestrian Marketplace where an enthusiastic crowd of spectators will inspire you. At mile 3.7 you begin a 4.5 mile out and back section on the Northern Connector, a divided highway which is closed to traffic only once a year for your race. On the Northern Connector, enjoy beautiful views of the Green Mountains and get a chance to see the leaders and your friends as you cross paths. At mile 8.2, return to city streets for a second pass through the Marketplace and a loop of Burlington’s South End. At the half-way point of the course, enter Oakledge Park and run alongside Lake Champlain for 2 miles. Mile 15 brings the Assault on Battery; 6 blocks climbing Battery Street. You’ll see the Taiko Drummers and throngs of spectators to inspire you up the hill. The next 6.5 miles take you out North Avenue on gently rolling terrain through many shaded neighborhoods. A steep downhill at mile 21.5 brings you to the Burlington Bikepath, which provides beautiful lake views and flat to slightly downhill terrain over the last 4.5 miles. Your finish and all post-race festivities occur in Waterfront Park where you’ll be greeted by thousands of cheering spectators.

» If walking on the bike path, please stay to the right.

The Start & Pace Teams Pace teams will be offered for the following times/paces: 3:30 (8:00/mile), 3:45 (8:35/mile), 4:00 (9:09/mile), 4:15 (9:44/ mile), 4:30 (10:18/mile), 4:45 (10:52/mile), 5:00 (11:27/mile), 5:30 (12:35/mile). Information about individual pace leaders and where to meet on Race Day will be available in April, 2012 at

Medical Information

From: Suzanne Elliott, MD, FACEP, FAAEM; Medical Director Denise Alosa, ATC; Medical Coordinator


familiarize yourself with the chart below so that you are aware of what the signs mean and what the recommended action is. In the unlikely event that extreme conditions (a wet bulb globe temperature, WBGT, of 82 degrees or higher) exist prior to race start at, we will cancel the race no later than 7:45 a.m. and notify runners at the start and through the media.

The 2012 KeyBank Vermont City Marathon Medical Team is a group of dedicated volunteer medical personnel available to assist you on race day. Our Team provides rapid assessment and treatment of your medical needs during the marathon. We want you to have a safe and healthy race, and are here to help however we can. PLEASE FILL OUT THE EMERGENCY MEDICAL AND CONTACT INFO ON THE BACK OF YOUR BIB. No matter how fit you feel on race day, this information could help us save your life should something happen to you on the course.

Medical Stations Our fully staffed medical tent is located at the finish line in Waterfront Park. In addition to these tents, medical aid stations are located throughout the course (about every 1.5 miles). Medical personnel can be identified by their red t-shirt with “MEDICAL” written on the front and back, and a photo ID badge.

Weather The weather at this time of year can be unpredictable. Be sure to check the local forecast and plan accordingly. The average temperature for May 27 in Burlington is 55 degrees at 8am and 68 degrees at noon. Race officials will monitor the temperature, humidity and radiant heat to determine the risk of weather related danger to participants. A sign indicating the current alert level will be present at each aid station. Please

Rules about Fluids It is well established that physiological function and performance is compromised as a result of dehydration. Sports drinks are generally the preferred beverage to maintain optimum hydration (many of these include essential electrolytes such as sodium). The following tips will help you decide how much to drink on race day: • Drink at least 16 ounces of fluid 1-2 hours before the race and drink another 16 ounces of fluid in the hour before the race. • Check your urine 1/2 hour before the race, if clear to yellow then you are well pre-hydrated, if dark and concentrated then drink more fluids! • During the race drink no more than 1 cup (8-10 ounces) of fluid every 15-20 minutes along the way - that does not mean a cup at EVERY water station. Remember to drink enough but DO NOT OVER DRINK! Fluid replacement should approximate sweat and urine losses to maintain hydration at less than 2% body weight reduction. These are guidelines only – athletes must know their individual needs. Runners who sweat more than average will require more than the recommended amount of fluids.

Medical History



I hereby authorize the release of medical information obtained by any medical personnel or facility of treatment rendered to me for illness or injury incurred during my participation in this event.



After you Cross the Finish Line Runners should continue to walk for at least 15-20 minutes after finishing the race. Standing still or stopping can cause you to feel nauseous, dizzy, and weak. Endurance athletes may experience fainting immediately after completing a race if they don’t continue to walk. Walking will help to redirect the blood pooling in your legs back to vital organs, including your brain. Drink fluids slowly as tolerated. If you think you need help, ask one of our medical personnel at the finish. You will be provided with water and a light snack at the finish line. Additional beverages and food are available in the Runner's Food Tent at the north end of the park.

Hyponatremia is a disorder of results in a dangerously low sodium concentration in the blood. Excessive drinking, sodium loss from sweating, and the kidney’s limited capacity to excrete water will dilute sodium in the body’s fluids and can cause hyponatremia. Athletes that drink too much before and during prolonged exercise and “salty sweaters” are at risk. Females, runners with a slight build, runners taking over 4 hours to complete the course, and those taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as Advil, Motrin, Aleve, ibuprofen, naproxen, etc.) may be particularly susceptible to this risk. Nausea, vomiting, throbbing headache, dizziness, severe fatigue, swollen hands and feet, wheezy breathing, confusion, disorientation, and lack of coordination may all be seen with hyponatremia. In severe cases, it may result in seizure, respiratory arrest, coma and even death. Symptoms can occur up to 24 hours after an endurance event. (See fluid guidelines above and know your own fluid needs.)

Pain Relievers Recent medical research has shown that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like Advil, Motrin, Aleve, ibuprofen, naproxen, etc. may be harmful to a runner’s kidney function if taken within 24 hours of an event. NSAIDs are thought to increase the possibility of hyponatremia during endurance activities by causing decreased blood flow to the kidneys and interfering with a hormone that helps the body retain salt. Therefore it is recommended that on race day you do not use any analgesic but acetaminophen (Tylenol) if needed after midnight on race day. NSAIDs may be taken again 6 hours after you have finished the race providing you are able to drink without nausea or vomiting, have urinated once, and are feeling physically and mentally normal.

12:30 – 1:20pm NUTRITION FOR WOMEN’S HEALTH Sheraton Amphitheater While good nutrition is important for all runners, women have some special nutrition concerns. There are winning nutrition combinations that can help reduce risks of stress fractures, amenorrhea, and fatigue to improve running performance and prevent injury.

1:30 – 3:00pm KBVCM COURSE REVIEW Sheraton Amphitheater Course preview: presented by long-time experts Jess Cover and Rick Blount. 3:00 – 3:50pm COMPETITIVE RUNNING FORM Sheraton Amphitheater Slow video analysis of today's professional long distance runners. Today's top runners come in many different shapes and sizes. In addition, their running patterns vary dramatically. Fortunately, they do not narrow their training to one particular style of running. So why should we? We will review today's professional long distance runners, male and female, (Ryan Hall, Meb K, Haile Gebrselassie, Radcliff, Goucher, etc.) and emphasize how and why different running forms can all be extremely successful. Presented by Andy Bowen of Green Mountain Physical Therapy and Running Medicine Store.


Sheraton Amphitheater Back by popular demand! In 2008, Laura Skladzinski attempted her first marathon by "running for ice cream" here at the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon. Last year, she broke the world record as the youngest woman to run a marathon in all 50 states. Hear her inspirational and hilarious stories of running across the country, and get tips and motivation for your own race. KeyBank Vermont City Marathon & Relay 5 / 27 / 12

The RunVermont Hall of Fame was formed to recognize those individuals who had participated in every running of the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon since its inception. When this event reached its 20th Anniversary in 2008, the RunVermont Board of Directors elected to broaden the recognition offered by the Hall of Fame and opened consideration to people whose efforts, consistent with the mission of RunVermont, have supported running in Vermont.

2012 Inductee: sam davis There are few arenas in the local running community that Sam Davis hasn’t touched. Sam currently volunteers at many athletic events including Ready, Set, Run! and YAM Scram. Sam serves on the newly formed Youth Committee and the YAM Scram Race Committee. As a USA Track & Field certified coach, Sam provides consultation for runners of all ages and abilities, including sam davis his Marathon 201 and Half Marathon class participants. His quiet enthusiasm is motivating to kids and adults alike. Sam’s excitement about running is contagious, his energy abundant. One of Sam’s Marathon 201 students writes, “Training for a long race can be a chore, no doubt, but Sam’s stories, good nature and advice always made me see the upside, even on my worst days. I often hear that running is a “community,” and Sam epitomizes that for me. From first class to last, regardless of our skill levels, he made everyone feel like they were part of something special, and by example made each of us WANT To be part of it.” Sam’s dedication to running and especially to his students and our community’s youth is remarkable and inspiring.

Key Achievement Award The KeyAchievement award honors a volunteer whose dedication, enthusiasm, and overall contribution help make the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon the exceptional experience it is for our runners, our spectators and our community. This year we are proud award long time KBVCM Race Committee members Tim O’Reilly and Roy Ferland with this award. These two gentlemen are representatives of the many unheard and unseen volunteers that toil in the background. Tim’s smile and enthusiasm go into every runner’s race bag. Tim has introduced his entire family, many of his friends and more than a few co-workers to the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon and to the sport of running in general. Roy Ferland has served as our Quartermaster since 1996. Roy and his very capable team are the folks who go to work while the rest of us go to bed to prepare for the race. Roy moves the RunVermont offices to the Expo, then from the Expo to Waterfront Park. At 1am on race day they really go to work, dropping supplies for 21 aid stations spread around the course. And after a brief catnap, Roy and his team follow the tail of the race and pick up all the remaining materials. If you’re lucky enough to meet either of these men, please express your thanks as the event would not happen without them. KeyBank Vermont City Marathon & Relay 5 / 27 / 12
