The course is a stunning, challenging tour of Stowe’s beautiful countryside, starting at Stowe Land Trust’s Mayo Farm Event Fields before turning left on to West Hill Road. Winding up and past some of Vermont’s most beautiful Autumn vistas, at Mile 7 the course joins the Stowe Bike Path for the final 3 miles of pedestrian-only traffic, crossing the West Branch River and finally returning to Mayo Farm.
The Vermont 10 Miler course is in the heart of the Green Mountains. With a total elevation gain of more than 800 feet, runners and walkers should be prepared for some challenging hills on the first half of the course before a downhill and flat second half to the course.
