BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon is apologizing for not having enough medals for finishers on Sunday.

Peter Delaney, race director for Vermont City Marathon, issued a statement on the event’s website saying during the ordering process the quantity of 2-person relay medals and marathon medals was reversed, leaving the event with not enough medals for marathon finishers. He says, it is as unacceptable to him as it is “to all who were shortchanged at their finish line celebration.”

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/1Fho43y ) that Delaney notified runners in an email that those who finished the marathon more than five hours after it started will be getting a medal as well as a hat or shirt.
