Race Update: July 14th.
Congratulations and a big Thank You to all the finishers and volunteers of this years classic Stowe 8 miler and relay.
It turned out to be a splendid day for a race with the rain holding off until later in the day and a manageable temperature. Almost 700 runners combined finished the race! We were happy to see most everyone trek up to the Rusty Nail for some much deserved hand-scooped ice cream and frosty Smutty beer. Thanks for cooperating with us on our venue change. See you next year!

The Stowe 8-Miler is a classic summer race now in its 33rd year. Vermonters and runners from all over New England and Canada return year after year to Stowe for this historic event. A two-person relay was added in 2012 and has proven to be a popular addition. If you are a veteran runner of this race we welcome you back; if you are considering running the Stowe 8-Miler, don’t miss the fun!
