A:This hilly event in the heart of the Green Mountains is probably the most famous race in Vermont, and for good reason. The course is one of the most scenic in the state, winding through the back roads of the resort town of Stowe, beneath the slopes of the state’s highest peak. A handful of running clubs from around New England converge on the Stowe 8 Miler to compete against each other, making the lead times unusually fast for a race in these parts. This year's race takes place July 15.
