Join us for the 5th annual running of the Frederick Summer Solstice 8k (Frederick County's Original Twilight Race), presented by the Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club.
The summer solstice typically heralds the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. Summer can't begin without racing the Summer Solstice 8K in Walkersville, MD on June 20.
Sign up individually, or for even more fun, put together a team of your friends, family or co-workers:
Net proceeds will be donated to the Frederick chapter of Blessings in a Backpack. The local chapter works in partnership with the national Blessings in a Backpack organization to provide weekend food to children who depend on the federal Free And Reduce-Price Meal program as their primary source of nutrition.
For the safety of our participants, the 8k race has a time cutoff of 1 hour and 15 minutes. Participants should be able to maintain a sub 15:00-minute per mile pace. Runners who feel they cannot maintain a 15-minute per mile pace may want to consider registering for our 1 mile Fun Run.
