The New England Green River Marathon is as scenic as it is fast. Running along the mostly wooded banks of the Green River, from Marlboro College in Vermont to Greenfield Community College in Massachusetts, the downhill course features a net 1,450-foot drop. If you like small, rural, community races through some of the most beautiful landscape in New England, then this is the marathon for you. This race will raise funds for the Connecticut River Conservancy’s efforts to preserve and improve the Green River, one of the many tributaries that flow into the Connecticut River, and also will support the Sugarloaf Mountain Athletic Club’s activities in the Pioneer Valley. Register here.

The Green River Watershed Alliance will advocate for landowner awareness along the route and during the race, and supply runners with interesting information along the route as the race happens. Check-in for more details about how you can support these athletes as they traverse the watershed!
