Update: September 10, 2021
We look forward to hosting a capped field of runners while adhering to strict covid protocols to ensure the safety of participants, volunteers, and the community.
Deferred 2020 Registrants
All 2020 registrants have been automatically deferred and entered into this year’s race. No further action is required for those individuals. To check if you are registered for the race, visit HERE.
Strict Capacity Limit
Our capacity is set at 1,500 runners which will be split into multiple waves.
Safety and COVID-19 Protocols
We continue to work with state and local officials as we craft our protocols guided by science and based on the recommendations of our public health officials at the time of the race. We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation as we look to host a safe and responsible event.
Masks are required for ALL participants, staff, and volunteers at bib pickup, regardless of location. For race day, based one current guidelines from CDC and the Vermont Department of Health, if you’re fully vaccinated you do not need to wear a mask outside. If you’re not fully vaccinated, please wear a mask whenever social distancing is not available. These policies are subject to change if recommendations are adjusted, and updates will be communicated to participants via email, website and social media if so.

Hight Risk Attendees
We strongly recommend that any runners or spectators who are considered to be “high-risk” under CDC guidelines, refrain from coming to the Race at this time.
While we’re optimistic that we’ll be able to host a safe, in-person race, if the event is cancelled due to Covid, all registrants will have the option of an Eventbrite Credit. More information available here.
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.
Saturday, November 6 – TBD: 12:00 p.m – 3:00 p.m
Race Day – Mayo Farm Fields (map): 8:00 a.m – 9:50 a.m
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 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

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.

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.
