Stowe 8-Miler & 5K
The 37th Annual Stowe 8-Miler & 5k is returning to Stowe, Vermont July 8, 2018 for another day of scenic New England running. Join thousands of runners and spectators at Vermont’s best summer road race.
The 8-Miler boasts a rolling course that ambles through the beautiful Vermont countryside then takes you through the heart of downtown Stowe. Scenic views of mountains, fields and country roads abound. The race starts at the recreation fields on Weeks Hill Road and finishes in front of the Golden Eagle Resort.
The start of the race will be wider than a standard race and includes a “cross-country” type start on dirt. But don’t worry, you can wear normal running or racing shoes – no spikes needed – the dirt section is only about 1/4 mile and fairly smooth.
The 5k is a very easy course with no hills and only a few small inclines. The total course elevation changes only 70 feet over the entire distance.
The Stowe 8-Miler & 5k is much more than just a road race! Your registration also includes access to an after-party featuring refreshing craft beer and delicious homemade ice cream. There’s no better way to cool off and celebrate your finish after a hot summer run.
Registration and packet pickup take place at 135 Weeks Hill Road. Please arrive by 7 a.m. to ensure you have time to park, check-in before the race begins at 8:30 a.m.
