RACE DAY REGISTRATION 7:30-8:15 AM
Karsten Brown and Amanda Beal lead the field in 2017
A Maryland RRCA Grand Prix Series Race.
We will use the same course as last year since again the tennis court parking lot is not available to be used as the finish area. This means that post race refreshments will be in the shade. Here is the updated course map .
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!
Tom DeKornfeld, Peggy Vail, and Neal Hinkle
