ONLINE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED! EVENT DAY SIGN UP ON 9/21 AT THE BIG BEAN (BEHIND THE STORE BY THE B&A TRAIL) FROM 7:30 A.M. - 11:00 A.M. AND SEVERNA PARK TAPHOUSE FROM 11:00 A.M. - 2:30 P.M.
Bikers, runners, or walkers, come spend a day on the B&A Trail and support EB Research Partnership (EBRP)! 100% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to EBRP to find a cure and treatment of Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB).
The B&A Trail is a 13.3 mile paved trail that extends from Annapolis to Glen Burnie. Choose your own adventure! Run, walk, bike or a little bit of each. Pick your start time (see below for wristband pickup hours), distance and pace. Plus, enjoy fuel stops at local businesses along the B&A. This is not a timed event but this fully supported course would be great for runners training for a Fall Race or anyone looking for a fun, social event.
Your registration includes coffee at The Big Bean (7:30 AM - 4PM), a scoop of ice cream at Brusters (Severna Park: 12 PM - 8 PM or Glen Burnie 11AM - 8 PM) and a lunch buffet at Severna Park Taphouse with 2 beer tickets (11 AM - 3PM). There will also be water at these businesses and other water stops from 8 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. to refill your bottles (BYO). See Map.
Wristband pick up/check-in will be available in front of the Big Bean from 7:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. and also from the Severna Park Taphouse from 11:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
