Results

Results are available for this race! You will be given the option during registration to “opt-in” to receive either text or email notifications. This will be the first step to be able to submit your time, after you complete your race, to get your results published. You will submit your time (HH:MM:SS format) through a text or email, and it will automatically upload to the results. Since there is no way to ensure accuracy or a fair comparison of times submitted, the results will only be used to capture your time, proof of participation and for bragging rights! Results will be displayed as “overall” with the ability to drill down to your
“age group”. Submitting your time for results is optional.

The Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund was established in 1999 by Jeff and Patty Hurwitz, after Patty’s diagnosis of breast cancer. Believing that early diagnosis was the key to Patty’s successful outcome, the goal of the fund has been to provide the most innovative options in early detection and treatment of breast cancer.

Contributions from the Fund benefit Frederick Health and are helping save lives here in Frederick County. Every dollar donated to the Fund is used for direct patient benefit; there are no administrative costs.

Over the past 20 years, more than $2 million has been provided through community support for the fund and its event
