This event benefits:
We need help feeding the homeless now more than ever!
With the spread of the Covid-19 virus, our homeless population across the state of Maryland is growing at an alarming rate, and they need our help!
RUNNERS STAY STRONG VIRTUAL RACE SERIES
Now is the time for us to come together... by staying apart.
Now is the time for us to help local non-profits which have seen their donations decrease when the needs in our community are greater than ever.
Now is the time for us to Stay Strong!
During this time of isolation, join together with runners and walkers all over the country in supporting their local charities and organizations.
100% of your race entry fee goes to Feed the Hungry Maryland!

OPTIONAL SWAG PACKAGE
If you'd like something to remember your race, we've partnered with the Runners Stay Strong Virtual Race Series to offer our participants a "Swag Package" that includes a tshirt, custom race bib and silicone bracelet. The package is just $15 and includes shipping anywhere in the continental US and Canada. These items will be shipped to you after the race is over.
USE ANY GPS-ENABLED WATCH OR MOBILE APP TO TRACK YOUR RUN
There are plenty of running or walking apps that allow you to carry your phone when you participate in your virtual race. These apps enable GPS tracking to keep track of your distance, pace and time! We recommend Strava, Run Keeper, Pacer or Map My Run. By using your phone or any other GPS-enabled device (as opposed to step-trackers), you will get a more accurate time, pace and distance.
RUN OR WALK!
Decide which day you're going to race. Lace up, head out and be sure to track your distance, time and pace using one of the recommended apps above or your own GPS-enabled watch. You can also simply run on a treadmillto keep track of your distance and pace.
