Join us for the 32nd annual Frederick Women's Distance Festival!

In-person racing is back! But our runners loved the virtual option last year, so we're offering both in 2021.

Participants may transfer between the in-person and virtual race events until July 30th.

Rest assured that we will have detailed COVID safety procedures in place in alignment with current federal, state, and local health recommendations.

Net proceeds will again be donated to The Women's Giving Circle of Frederick County.
