See attached drawing. Therefore, effective immediately, we are to ONLY park in the lower lot at Jonas Green. If this lot is full, you can park at the Severn Inn, the WWII memorial or, for our veteran runners, at the south parking lot for the B&A Trail (at 450 and Boulters Way).

Directions to Jonas Green Park parking lot: from Annapolis go over Naval Academy Bridge on  over the Severn River Rte 450, turn right just over the bridge and make the first right as if you were going to the Severn Inn. Continue straight into the parking lot for the park. Please park only in lined spaces. 


Running Directions to B&A Trail from Jonas Green Park: The 1st 100 yards or so of the Course are uphill from Jonas Green Park on the left side of Route 450. You will see a line and the letter S [Start] in the roadway near the WWII Memorial. Run North on Route 450 and at Boulters Way, make a left  onto Boulters Way. At Manresa, you will see a "1" which is one mile from the "S."

Run up the Boulters Way hill. At the top of the hill, you will see mile marker zero for the trail. Take a right onto the B&A Trail. It is about 1.5 miles from the "S"to the head of the B&A trail. There are mile markers on the B&A trail to help you gauge your distance. When you have run the prescribed distance, turn around and come back to Jonas Green Park crossing 450 at the crosswalk near the intersection of Boulters Way and 450, and running against traffic on the Annapolis 10 mile course. As you get near the bridge, you will see a white line and the letter F, which stands for finish
