Lil’ B 5k-ish
April 4 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
The Lil’B 5k-ish was so much fun, we’re doing it again. In typical trail running style, we are going super low-key. No frills, no door prizes, no awards, no pressure. Just some fun hanging out with your trail peeps for a morning and clocking a time. Bring your own water, and bring a snack to share when we’re all done.
We’re running a new course this year. It will most definitely be 5k-ish, with strong emphasis on the “ish.” So come prepared to run long. The course starts with two miles of mostly gradual downhill on a brand new trail. Some things happen in the middle, and then you finish off with a half mile climb back up to the start/finish. Course is 100% runnable, but you may want to hike part of the final climb. The entire course is single-track with not much in the way of roots or rocks. This is a great course for first-timers who want to see what trail racing is all about.
PARENTS: While we are no longer doing the stretch on Prescott Road, with the new course there are even more opportunities in the woods for your kid to miss a turn and end up in Clarksburg. Consider this carefully before signing up your kid.
$0 Sorry folks, per our permit restrictions, you must be a member of the Steeplechasers.

Food and Drinks
Please bring your own food and beverage to share after the race. We love breakfast runs!
Any announcements about possible cancellations due to weather will be made on the Frederick Steeplechasers Facebook Group. If race day, or weather in the days prior makes the trails too mucky, we’ll need to cancel so we don’t damage the trails.
Little Bennett Regional Park – Prescott Entrance. NOTE: The address given is for the Little Bennett Golf Course, which will get you close, but not quite there. Follow signs and volunteers directing traffic.
Strollers and Pets
Ummm, yeah……maybe it’s not obvious, but this course isn’t stroller friendly. We also need you to leave your pets at home. Lots of dogs and leashes and single-track trails and people who aren’t accustomed to running with dogs generally doesn’t work out so well.
We need volunteers to make this event happen. For some positions you will also be able to race. Register to volunteer.
