Parking

Parking

Vermont 10 Miler parking is available at the Mayo Farm/Stowe Event Fields (map), and is a short walk to both the start and finish of the race. Parking is limited in that there is only one entrance, and one exit. While our parking staff will be on site to assist, delays can build up. Consider carpooling or, if you’re staying nearby, consider taking the gorgeous Stowe Recreation path to the start on foot or bike!

To ensure you have the most stress-free parking possible, please arrive early. After you finish, grab a snack from our complimentary athlete food area and then hang out at our post-race beer garden — the first beer from Von Trapp Brewing is on us if you’re 21+ — and enjoy cheering on your fellow finishers!

There is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Race organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather like snow or thunderstorms, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, race officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the race.

Entry fees are non-refundable. Please check the website, our Facebook page and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.
