Welcome back to the Makin' Hay 10K! We can't wait to have you out on this wonderfully scenic loop course on Saturday, April 23, 2022.

This scenic and rolling 10K course will take you on a journey through some of the prettiest farmland in Frederick County.  Spring will be ushering forth 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!!!

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 4/2/22 to guarantee your shirt size.  We are working on a new design for the 2022 short-sleeve tri-blend shirts. 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!

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. If the in-person event must be canceled for coronavirus-related factors, Sunday October 16th will be the make-up date or registrations can be carried over to the 2023 event.
