Bill Rodgers's favorite places to run in NE
Lake Champlain, Vermont
I was first introduced to this area via the Key Bank Vermont City Marathon and its been a favorite of mine ever since. The course starts in Battery Park, in Burlington which is a great, friendly city and runs up the Vermont side of Lake Champlain. Its a beautiful route, having views of both the Green mountains of Vermont and the Adirondacks of New York State. Lake Champlain itself is also quite a sight, especially in the summer when people come out in droves to relax, walk and run along its edge. You can go as far as you like, even to Canada if youre feeling ambitious! All in all its a great spot for sightseeing, meeting new people and of course, running.
