Lewis Memorial 10-Miler

January 14 @ 8:30 am

** FSRC Grand Prix Event **

Note that the location of the race has been moved to the Palmieri Activities Center (PAC) on the Mount St. Mary’s campus.

This is a prediction race, so participants may not wear watches. Leave ’em in your car, your gym bag, or at home. The winner is the runner who runs closest to their predicted time. Note: FSRC Grand Prix results will be based on actual finish time.

Where: 16300 Old Emmitsburg Rd. (PAC Building) near Emmitsburg, Md.

Why: Because you love the challenge of running wicked hills in freezing weather.

Who: FSRC members. If you’re not a current member, it’s only $20 to join the club. Still a great deal for a 10-mile race, even if you don’t take advantage of the many other benefits of club membership. If you are a current member,  you may need to renew if your membership is due to expire before race day. If you need to renew or join the club, please go to https://runsignup.com/fsrc to join or https://runsignup.com/Club/SearchForRenew/668 to renew, then come back here to register for the race. If you have questions about your membership, please send email to membership@steeplechasers.org.

How much: Free for Steeplechaser members

Registration: Please register online before showing up on race morning, or plan on registering from your phone at the race venue. We will not be doing in-person registration.

What else: The Lewis Run is the early season race that we love to hate.   Prizes go to the closest predicted time and front runners receive our admiration and a hearty slap on the back. The course is mostly paved but REALLY HILLY! There is about a one mile section of unpaved road. In order to do awards in a timely fashion and get the volunteers off the roads, there is a 2:30 time limit for this event. That equates to a fairly generous 15 min/mile, but it’s not an event for walkers.

Breakfast:  Bring a food item to share.  (We run to eat, right?)

Directions:  From Rt. 15 North, turn left onto the Mount St. Mary’s University campus. Follow parking attendants’ directions. That’s it!

Weather: It’s a winter race therefore the weather could be an issue. Any announcements about possible cancellations due to weather will be made on the Frederick Steeplechasers Facebook Group.  Registered runners will be notified by email.

Parking: Once you reach the campus, attendants will provide directions to where you should park.

Volunteer: This was never intended to be a big event.  It’s an especially challenging 10-mile route with minimal support.  But volunteers are much needed as course marshals to help keep runners safe on the hilly 10-mile route, so if you want to avoid the painful hills but still want to participate, VOLUNTEER!   Sign up to volunteer at: runsignup.com/fsrclewisrun/volunteer
