2020 Race Canceled
It was our sincere hope that we would be able to host the Vermont 10 Miler in 2020. We have have put in many hours formulating event protocols and safety measures. But, we have come to the conclusion as a staff and with the Town of Stowe that it is simply not safe or realistic to host an event of this size under the current Vermont guidelines.
All registrants will receive an email with their options.
As always, the safety and health of our runners, volunteers and staff is our top priority. We’re thankful for each and every one of our participants and your support and understanding as we navigate this devastating year to our business and work towards sunnier days on the road together again.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gray Matter Marketing
A portion of each registration fee will be donated directly to the Stowe Land Trust, preserving Stowe’s most beautiful open spaces and promoting conservationism.
Important Race Information:
Bib + T-Shirt Pick-Up
Registered participants will receive a race bib and timing chip at registration which will be held Saturday and Sunday.
All participants must present a photo ID to pick-up their bib. Participants may pick-up for friends and family, but must provide a copy of the ID or a photo of the ID on their phone for verification – we will be diligently checking ID’s to ensure no runners bibs are handed out without their permission. It is recommended that all participants attend Saturday registration to alleviate race morning delays.
Shirts & Medals
All registered participants will receive a long sleeve tech t-shirt with Vermont 10 Miler artwork on the chest, sleeve and back. All finisher’s will receive the finisher’s medal pictured.
Please note that shirts are ordered weeks in advance of the event and that size quantities are based on what participants indicated when they registered. For this reason, we ask that you please pick-up the shirt size you registered for.
Race Day Schedule
8:00 AM: Parking and Bib Pick-Up open
10:00 AM: Race Start
11:00 AM – 1 PM: Post-Race Beer Garden
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 is on us if you’re 21+ — and enjoy cheering on your fellow finishers!

The Vermont 10 Miler course is in the heart of the Green Mountains. With a total elevation gain of 700 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.
Our free bag drop will be available to all runners starting at 8:30 AM on race morning, near the start/finish area. You must provide your own bag — we will be using adhesive tape to identify bags based on runners’ bib numbers.
Note: Parking is near the race start/finish — runners are encouraged to return their gear to their car. Our gear drop volunteers are not responsible for any valuables lost in the free gear bag check. If you have valuable items, please leave them in your car or keep them on your person.
Extreme Weather Policy
Our events are held rain or shine. However, 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, 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. We do not schedule “rain dates”. Any decision to cancel an event is done as an absolute last resort and is made collectively with local risk management, police, fire & rescue, and medical personnel as appropriate. In such situations, there will be NO REFUNDS as registrants accept any such risk of their entry free when signing up.
Please check the website, our Facebook page, and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.
