JFK 50 Mile 19 Aid Station


November 18, 8:00 a.m. – Mile 19 Aid Station at Lock 34 on the C&O Canal – Come out and cheer on the runners at the FSRC JFK Mile 19 Aid station! Last year our aid station was awarded first place among the 14 aid stations! Yes – we’re pretty wonderful!

Our aid station is located at Lock 34 on the C&O Canal.

To get there, take U.S. 340 to the traffic light just before you cross the river and make a left onto Valley/Keep Tryst Rd. Follow Keep Tryst Rd. to a right onto Sandy Hook Rd. Follow under 340 and past the RR tunnel and past the trail entrance to Maryland Heights until you reach Hoffmaster Rd. on the right. Once past Hoffmaster Rd. there is a little parking area on the left. That’s where we meet.

However: the National Park Service has asked us not to park in the lot above the aid station this year. There is parking along the road at Maryland Heights or Sandy Hook or about a mile walk from Harpers Ferry using the foot bridge and the towpath.
