JFK 50 Mile 19 Aid Station

November 20, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Come out and cheer on the runners at the FSRC JFK Mile 19 Aid station! Our aid station has taken first-place honors a few times, and we’re looking forward to getting back out there in 2021!

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, and the parking lot at Maryland Heights is currently closed. It’s about a mile walk from the Harpers Ferry Station Lot (fee) using the footbridge and the towpath. Or park at the National Park Visitor’s Center, take the shuttle into town, and walk to Lock 34 via the towpath.

New Parking option arranged by Anne Shubert: We’ve gotten permission from the owner of Blue Mountain Retreat Center to use their parking area on Hoffmaster Road. She asks that we use the larger area on the left of driveway and park closely together. Address is: 1032 Hoffmaster Rd, Knoxville, MD 21758 https://goo.gl/maps/AXAQD8mMBPe1A2Kn8
