Special Notification – 2019 Dawson’s Fathers Day 10K Cancellation

Fellow runners:

I am sure you are disappointed with the news that the Father’s Day 10k race has been cancelled.  It was not an easy decision to make and we are just as disappointed.  We were informed that a student sporting event was being held at Severna Park High School the same weekend and began searching for a new venue.  As I am sure you are aware, there are not many places that can safely host a race of 400+ runners, volunteers and spectators.  We found two possibilities; however, after further investigation, we felt that neither location would be safe for you, all our  volunteers, spectators or local community.   So we made the hard decision in the interest of what was best.

For those of you participating in the Championship Series, the scoring will be adjusted to reflect the cancellation of this race.  For those of you individual participants that registered through, you will be receiving a refund. (We are working on that process currently).

We thank each of you for your interest in participating and will plan to hold the race again next year.   Please look for our other races on our website, and we look forward to seeing you there!

Should you have any questions, please email myself or our VP of Races, Irene.

Thank you for your time and understanding.

Greetings Runners!

The 37th annual Dawson’s Father’s Day 10K will start from the new Severna Park High School, just next to the site of the former high school. Unlike previous years, we will not have access to the school—including the bathrooms–other than to the lobby, where race day registration and bib pick-up will be held. Access beyond the registration area will be roped off with lines and signs. Please respect them so that we can continue to have use of the school for the B&A Marathon, Father’s Day 10K, and Marathon Training Program. We will have extra port-a-pots in the parking lot across from the cafeteria.

The weather looks to be warm, in the low 80s—not too hot to run your best 10K, but do make sure that you are well hydrated.

Congratulations to graduates of the 10K Training Program class, some of whom will be running their first 10K on Sunday.

Have a great race!
