Wild Trail 5k/10k

April 21 @ 8:30 am

** FSRC Grand Prix Event **

*Both the 5Kand 10K are Grand Prix events. They will be scored separately and treated as 2 races. *

This Steeplechaser low-key trail race is back with an exciting course at beautiful Thorpewood in northern Frederick County.

Join us for this beginner-friendly low-key trail race at beautiful ThorpeWood in northern Frederick County. Thorpewood is .private property – so this event is your one and only chance to access this beautiful course.

Have you ever accidentally gone out for a run and showed up 5 minutes late with a slightly moldy water bottle, or *oh no* a totally mismatched running outfit?

Have you ever missed a turn and run extra *bonus* mileage during a training run or a race?

Have you ever skipped a run and shown up at the after-party to celebrate?

If so, you too might be a trail runner!

If your initial response was, “No way, I don’t know the first thing about trail running!” don’t worry, we’re here to help! Click the sign-up button and we’ll walk you through it – no special shoes, gear or clothing required. Just a smile. And being “okay” with a little mud on your shoes. Join us for a wild and crazy idea – mixing running with nature!
