Rosaryville 50K
The Sixth Annual
Annapolis Striders
Rosaryville Veteran's Day 50K
Saturday, November 14th, 2015 8:00 am
at Rosaryville State Park

The race will close at 200 participants.

The course is basically three loops around the Rosaryville State Park perimeter trail. The course is mostly in deep woods, though there is some running in meadow also. The trail is largely single track; not very technical. The Start (also the Finish) is at the Pavilion picnic area about three quarters of a mile from where the runners enter the single-track perimeter trail. Good food after the race.

The course has two aid stations about 4 1/2  miles apart. There will be a bag drop at the first aid station. We will transport bags from the Start to the bag drop site when the race begins and return them to the pavilion after the race--or you can pick up your bag as you leave the park.


To volunteer:

Contact Co-Race Director, Tom DeKornfeld  or 410-562-4489 


Contact Co-Race Director, Richard Snyder  or 410-693-3543 

Volunteer validation available.
