A note from Steeplechaser Rick Kern: After speaking to a few club members and taking notice how often members run and travel to run the half marathon distance in many different locations (and many times members are traveling to various locations on the same weekend), a decision was made to reach out to the Runner’s World Half Marathon & Festival on October 18-20, 2019 in Bethlehem, PA. The race was generous to offer the Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club a discounted race registration fee. The discount code in the bimonthly club newsletter email will give Steeps members 15% off any of the running events offered. The code is active at this time.

So, what does this mean? An opportunity to travel outside of the Frederick area (as many members already do) and run a half marathon with a strong Steeplechaser presence. The event is not a great distance from Frederick, MD but far enough that it will require some travel. Rick has reserved a few hotel rooms depending on interest, and as the race date approaches, further details can be worked out regarding travel, carpooling, eats, etc. Please feel free to email Rick for additional details!
