Race Beneficiaries:
We are pleased to announce that a portion of the proceeds from the 2017 Moonlight 5k will be donated to Special Olympics of Harford County and John Archer School.

Special Olympics Maryland – Harford County (SOMD-HA) provides a year-round training and competitive sports program for Harford County children and adults with intellectual disabilities and/or closely related developmental disabilities.

John Archer School is the only public special education school serving students with disabilities in Harford County. In a positive, welcoming environment, students are challenged to meet high expectations so that they can develop skills needed for independence


The race will start at the Harford County Equestrian Center and travel on paved paths through the property to meet up with the gravel Ma & Pa Trail. Runners do an out-and-back trip on the trail before returning to the Equestrian Center for the finish. The entire route is on firm surfaces suitable for strollers and folks that just don’t want to risk turning an ankle!
