Join thousands of runners and spectators at Vermontís best summer road race, where you celebrate your finish with refreshingly cool Island Homemade Ice Cream and delicious craft beer from Harpoon!


Event Start Location
Stowe Recreation Area (135 Weeks Hill Rd.)

Course Description
8-miler: The course starts relatively flat with no real elevation gains for the first 2.5 miles. At this point you go up a very short steep hill just before mile 3 and then a gradual downhill run to Mile 4.5, but take it easy as you will pay for this later! Mile 5 to 7 is rolling with two miles along a nice dirt road and the final stretch a gradual uphill climb back into town.
5k: The 5k starts at the same time and place as the 8-Miler, but veers off at Mile 2 and continues the last mile on the scenic Stowe Bike Path.

Awards
Top finishers.
