Burlington, Vermont( December 6, 2013) – RunVermont and the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon have proudly announced that Olympic Gold Medalist, Joan Benoit Samuelson will be their guest at the 26th KeyBank Vermont City Marathon.

The 2014 KeyBank Vermont City Marathon & Relay will coincide with the 30th anniversary of the women’s marathon being introduced into the Olympics in Los Angeles, CA where Benoit Samuelson won gold. “We’re very excited to have Joanie here for this year’s race. She’s one of the most accomplished athletes in our sport and one of the greatest ambassadors. I’m confident that we’ll show her what a spectacular race we have.” said Peter Delaney, Executive Director of RunVermont.

Benoit Samuelson will be present at The Sports & Fitness Expo both Friday, May 23 and Saturday, May 24. She will be the Welcome Speaker and Honorary Starter at the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon & Relay on Sunday, May 25.
