The scenic and rolling 10K and 5k courses will take you on a journey through some of the prettiest farmland in Frederick County. Spring will be ushering forth in color as you run past numerous farms, along Catoctin Creek on a gravel road, and across two, historic one-lane, wooden deck bridges spanning Catoctin Creek. 5-year age group awards!!!
*NOTE- Race Day Registration will only be accepted via credit card payment and accomplished via your smartphone. $40 for the 5K and $45 for the 10K.
Race Day Schedule: 0700 - 0820 Bib Pickup; 0830-10K Start; 0835-5K Start; 1030-course closes for both events.
Bib pickup closes at 8:20 sharp for both events, with vehicular access to the park closing at that time. No late starts - plan your arrival time accordingly. Running strollers are allowed, but the wearing of headphones/earbuds is strongly discouraged as both courses are held on open roads where vehicular traffic may be encountered.
Our 5K option offers half the distance and half of the elevation change of our 10K, is all on paved surfaces, crosses one wooden deck bridge twice, and also provides some amazingly sweeping vistas!
Register before 3/19/2023 to guarantee your shirt size. Extra shirts have been ordered and will be distributed on a first-come-first-served basis at our packet pickup events. Finishers of the in-person event will receive a commemorative glass, and with 5-year age-group awards, there will be plenty of goodies to take home!
There is NO virtual option for 2023.
With a return to in-person running events, be assured that we will, at a minimum, be following current local, state, and CDC guidance dicta regarding coronavirus mitigation procedures.
Refund Policy: You will be given the opportunity to purchase event insurance during registration from a third-party provider. Registrants will be able to initiate a partial refund via their RunSignup profile up until 30 days prior to the event. After that, no individual refunds or transfers.
