Rosaryville 50K

Tenth Annual Rosaryville Veteran’s Day 50K

SATURDAY, November 9, 2019, 8:00 a.m.
at Rosaryville State Park
The race will close out at 200 participants
The course is mostly in deep woods at Rosaryville State Park, though there is some running in meadows 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. Hot food after the race starting about 11:30. The race will end at 4:00 pm.
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 or for more information, contact Co-Race Director,
  Tom DeKornfeld or 410-562-4489.

Volunteer validation available.
