The Historic Drawbridge Half will take place on Saturday, November 4th, 2023, and will navigate from Tilghman Island, straight up Route 33, and to St Michaels, making one of the only true turns of the race in to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum!! That's a 13.1 mile STRAIGHT RUN with little to no elevation or turns!!!
THE EVENT WILL START FROM THE WYLDER HOTEL ON TILGHMAN ISLAND AT 8AM!! RUNNERS WILL BE ALLOWED TO CROSS THE MAT WITHIN THE FIRST 5 MINUTES (8:00:00 TO 8:05:00) TO PROPERLY DISTANCE THEMSELVES. ALL RUNNERS MUST BE ON SITE AT THE START BY 7:45am.
We encourage participants to take advantage of the buses that will be available at the Maritime Museum no race morning to transport you to the start line at the Wylder Hotel in Tilghman Island, which is where the race starts. This way your vehicle is available for you upon your finish at the entrance to the Maritime Museum. From the start at Wylder Hotel, we will begin as a group, with traffic briefly shut down on the Island, until we can get everyone safely over the FIRST OF TWO DRAWBRIDGES and on to the shoulder of MD Route 33. Aide stations will be located along the course for your hydration and nutrition needs.
A four (4) hour cutoff will let you move as fast as you like, all the way to an 18 min 30 second pace. Perfect for those recovering from a long season, or just pushing their limits at the end of the year.
We are working with the TIlghman Island Volunteer Fire Department and the St Michaels Volunteer Fire Department to bring you a safe and fun event! A portion of the proceeds will go to EACH of the departments to assist with their annual fundraising efforts.
