We have been evaluating the COVID-19 situation on an ongoing basis with the health and safety of our runners and volunteers as our prime consideration. While we don't see a way to safely go forward with our normal in-person event, we have transitioned to the next best thing by going virtual for 2020.
We won't be together in person, but we can be together in spirit, showing the strength of our community.
Our Frederick Women's Distance Festival runners and volunteers are some of the most positive people we've encountered and we hope you'll stick with us as we continue to support the Women's Giving Circle grants program with the net proceeds of the race. The work provided by the nonprofits supported by these grants is more important than ever as our residents struggle through these unprecedented challenges.

The Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club offers a nine-week summer training program for women in preparation for the Frederick Women's Distance Festival 5k. This year the training will be virtual, but the encouragement and collaboration is very real. You can train with us at any location and do your training runs at times that are convenient to you. The coaches are excited to be able to bring our beloved women's 5k training program to you - wherever you are!
Registration for the training program is separate from registration for the race. Signup at: https://runsignup.com/fsrcwdf5ktraining. The training program is free for members of the Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club. If you're not already a member, you will need to signup before registering for the training program.
