Join us for the final installment of this Boonsboro race trilogy! In 2017, we celebrated the 225th Anniversary of Boonsboro with a special 2.25 mile event. Last year, we added extra distance and scenery to reach 5K. This year, we're reversing course ... literally. :) We'll start the same 3.1 mile course in Shafer Memorial Park but head in the opposite direction. The course takes you through the past and present of our town, including Shafer Park Extension & Nature Trail, the new development at Sycamore Run, around scenic Boonsboro Cemetery, and past the Trinity Reformed cemetery where town founder William Boone lays at rest.
Official timekeeping (chipped) will be provided by Overland Timing, but 'Boone'Walk & Runners are encouraged to enjoy the race at their own pace. Families, strollers, and dogs are welcome! Post-race festivities will feature commemorative awards for top finishers, sponsor promotions, and a range of munchies.
Proceeds benefit the Boonsboro Historical Society. Race funds support local student programs that advance historical education and preserve town heritage.
If you register by Weds 9/18/19, you may pick up your packets (bib#, pins, shirts and giveaways) in advance on Friday 9/20/19.
EARLY PICKUP @ BODYSENSE PT / PHYSICAL THERAPY (next to Domino's & Antietam Spirits)

If you missed the pre-registration cutoff, but still want to join - that's cool! Details as follows:
2019 update - This year's course runs 'backward' from prior versions, which keeps the narrow sections later in the race when volume has thinned out. The traffic coming in/out of cemetery will not cross itself. Instead of returning to the park via Rt 34 by the Creamery, the course doubles back to Rt 34 by the Police Barracks. Dogs and strollers will start in a delayed wave to avoid congestion. 3rd time's the charm!
Turn by turn course description. Note: Google map road names and actual signage do not match on various small roads. Description reflects actual signage. Course mileage varies by tracking device, ranges 3.0-3.3 miles. We'll take the average and call it even!
* Behind the stone wall at this intersection lays the gravesite of town founder, William Boone. If you aren't racing for time, take a detour around the corner and pay your respects!
** Water fountains and bathroom facilities are available at start//finish & trail loop. A manned water station will be provided on Monument Dr.
The overall vs. age & category-specific awards have been re-organized!
