UPDATE: May 11, 2020
To the Annapolis 10 Mile Run Community:
Due to the continuing public health threat of coronavirus (COVID-19), the Annapolis Striders has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Annapolis 10 Mile Run. Although we have not opened registration for the 2020 event, there are some runners that deferred from 2019 to 2020 and we will provide registration details for those deferred runners later.
We have made the decision to cancel after careful deliberation, knowing that our foremost responsibility is to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of our participants, our volunteers, our broader running community, and society at large. The current situation in the United States and throughout the world is one of disruption and uncertainty. We feel that moving forward with plans for a 4,000 person race is not aligned with what our government, medical experts, and society is asking us to do. While painful to do knowing the legacy that surrounds this event, we feel it is the responsible action to take in light of what is going on in the world around us.
We thank you for your patience and kindness during this difficult period. We hope you all remain safe and healthy and we look forward to gathering with you in Annapolis in August 2021.
The Annapolis Ten Mile Run is a 10-mile foot race organized by the Annapolis Striders, Inc., a 1200 member, all volunteer, non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, established in 1978, in Annapolis Maryland that promotes physical fitness and mental well-being through distance running.

RRCA Maryland and District of Columbia Team Competition
An award will be presented to the top scoring male team and an award will be presented to the top scoring female team, based on the net chip aggregate time of the top three fastest male and female runners, that are current members of a RRCA Maryland or D.C. running club. A team can consist of an unlimited number of runners of the same sex, but only the first three finishers will be scored in the competition. There are no mixed-sex teams. Each male and female team must separately consist of at least three finishers of the same sex in order to qualify for this award, and runners may only compete for one running club.
In order to be considered for this award, each scoring runner must be a current member of a RRCA Maryland and D.C. running club. At registration, there will be a pull down menu where you can select your running club. You must select your running club at the time of registration, and no changes to your designation will be permitted.
