The 8th Annual 8-Miler summer run in Stowe continues a New England tradition.
We're excited to catch the 5K Run and Stowe 8-Miler on Sunday, July 12. This run will mark the eighth year of the existence of the 8-Miler, and the excitement involved with all runners continues to grow with each passing year, especially with the addition of the 5K race.
The popularity of this race is such that not only people from Vermont but also other parts of New England and Canada take part as well. Camaraderie among the participants helps make this a truly enjoyable event.
Just as in past years, the race will begin in Recreation Field in Stowe with 2 of the 8 miles of the run taking place on a maintained dirt road. There's no need to worry about missing directional signs because everything will be clearly marked and certified. The finish line for the 8-mile race will be on the front lawn of the Golden Eagle Resort in Stowe. The 5K also starts and finishes in the same place with both events having water stops available for all runners. The 8-Miler will have four separate water stations spaced apart, and the 5K will have a single stop.
Sponsorship of the event is being undertaken by a number of local entities, including The Rusty Nail, Smuttynose Craft-brewed Beer and Island Homemade Ice Cream. On Saturday between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., runners can pick up their racing packet at the Nail, or participants can join on the day of the race beginning at 7 a.m.
The Green Mountain Inn is proud to support participants of this exciting event. Visit our website for a calendar of more fun events taking place in town this summer.
