Race Details:
Bib number pickup and race day registration is at Langdon Street (adjacent to the start/finish) from 7:45 to 8:45 a.m. Designated race portalets are in the parking lot next to 11 East State Street across from the new Onion River Outdoors store at 89 Main Street. Indoor bathrooms are available in the City Center Common Space adjacent to Onion River Outdoors. An access code will be provided for use of the indoor bathrooms.
Please allow extra time to find on-street parking. Due to race insurance requirements and the use of downtown streets, headphones and strollers are not allowed. The races start and finish on Langdon St. The street will be blocked off to traffic during the races.
The out-and-back course crosses in front of the Vermont State House and proceeds to the Montpelier Bike Path. The 5k Power Walkers will turn around at the 1.55 mile mark on the course. The 10k runners will proceed to the turnaround on Junction Rd. The flat and fast 10k course is roughly half paved and half dirt road.
Water stations will be located after the 10k turnaround (runners) and 5k turnaround (power walkers).

Power Walk rules: heel strikes first, one foot always in contact with the ground, knee slightly bent (not rigid as in race walking), no shuffling.

10k race prizes:
Onion River Outdoors gift certificates for the first female, male, and non-binary finishers in each five year age group: (10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, 85-89, 90 and up)

Runners age 50 and up (regardless of home state) are automatically dual registered (no extra cost) and eligible for Vermont Senior Games medals.

The Capital City Stampede 10k is the sixth event in the 2024 CVR/ORO Race Series, the third event in the 2024 GMAA Team Racing Performance Series, and a qualifier for the 2025 National Senior Games.
