A Happy Vibe at the Vermont City Marathon

The illumiNITE team had a blast last weekend at the Cleveland Marathon. The Expo rocked (just like Cleveland), and we reconnected with some long time customers and made some new friends. As much as we love the Midwest, it’s good to be back home.

Next up, the Vermont City Marathon in Burlington, Vermont. illumiNITE heads to the Marathon’s Sports and Fitness Expo this weekend on May 22nd and 23rd.

The Vermont City Marathon runs along beautiful Lake Champlain. Runners enjoy breathtaking views as they glide (or huff and puff) along the 26.2 miles to the finish line. With a smaller field of only 8,000 runners, the race has the intimate feel of a local road race, with the organization and high standards of a world-class marathon.

The race is fun for everyone – runners, volunteers, and spectators.   A friend ran this marathon a few years ago and it was our best spectator experience so far. The course design allowed us to get ahead of our friend, and cheer for her again and again, all the way to the finish line.

The City of Burlington is unique and full of interesting people. Three colleges contribute to the hippy vibe, and Church Street Marketplace is well worth a visit. Good feelings abound in this city, and you’ll feel them everywhere, including the race.

illumiNITE will shows off it’s best reflective running gear and accessories at the Sports and Fitness Expo. Summer days are longer and hotter, but safety during early morning or nighttime runs is still important. Our summer gear will keep you cool and wick away moisture, while still providing our innovative reflective technology for safety.

If you’re in the area, come visit us at Expos at Sheraton Hotel & Conference center on Friday (1:00 pm – 8:00pm ) and Saturday (9:00 am – 7:00 pm). Mention this blog post and you’ll get a gift and an entry to win a new illumiNITE jacket.
