Description

Join Velo Amis and Fusion Racing on the grounds of what used to be known as Foxcatcher Farms.  Chasing the sunset is a 5 mile race making its way through a combination of gravel roads and trails at Fair Hill park in Maryland.  For those who enjoy walking we will also have a 1 mile fun walk (not timed).  The 1 mile fun walk will be an out and back walk to the Fair Hill Hounds.  This race benefits the Fair Hill Hounds who will cheer you on as you run by at the start of the race.  We will gather at the Stafford Pavilion for the start of the race.  Stick around for post race snacks and a cold beer as the sun begins to set on Fair Hill

The Fair Hill Hounds, Inc is a fox chasing club that was formed by the followers of William (Willie) DuPont's Foxcatcher Hounds and Miss Patsy Du Pont to carry on the tradition of fox chasing over the ground upon which this Park, the Department of Natural Resources at Fair Hill, was founded. To learn more about the history behind the Park, please read the following articles written by Louisa Emerick and published in The Equiery.
