2020 Dog Days 8K Cross Country Run

A Maryland RRCA Grand Prix Series Race.

UPDATE

We cannot get a permit for the race.  It is cancelled.  We will see you on the trails next year.

As of June 3, 2020, we do not have a permit for the race.  We are continuing to plan and prepare in case we are allowed to have the event and can do so in a way that provides a safe environment for participants and volunteers.

We have made one change regarding preregistration that will still help us in our planning and at the same time make it easier if we are not able to have the race.  We are asking that you send us your completed waiver by regular mail or email as directed below without including the race fee for preregistrants.  On race day we will collect the fee (cash or check only) and give you your bib.

Application

Completed waivers should be mailed or emailed by July 25, 2020 using the addresses listed on the waiver.  Do not send the preregistration fee.  To get race information and the waiver click on dogdaysapp2020

Due to construction in 2019 which continues this year, we came up with a modified course.  We plan on using the same course this year.  Here is the current course map

The start is a cross country style start more or less along the extension of the left field line of the baseball field.

At the gravel road you turn right.
Near the end of the gravel road turn right onto the extension of the right field line of the softball field.

Second ½ Mile
Head North along the tree line of the practice fields.
At the gravel road you turn right.
Stay on the gravel road until you come to the paved sidewalk. Turn right onto the paved sidewalk. (This sidewalk is just beyond where you turned off of the gravel in the first ½ mile)
At end of sidewalk turn right onto Ring Road.
