The Annapolis Striders Race Committee is monitoring the weather very closely. We will attempt to make a definitive announcement regarding the status of the race no later than Noon on Saturday 4/7.
This Announcement will be on the Annapolis Striders Website, the Facebook home page as well as a mass email to all runners on file.
We appreciate the anxiety of the uncertain “weather” situation, and we will do everything in our power to communicate all information as soon as we know it.
The 2018 edition of the B & A Trail Marathon and Half Marathon will be at the new Severna Park High School for the second year, with a starting time of 07:30 AM.

This year we are the Maryland State RRCA Championship Race for the half marathon (13.1 mile) distance. The RRCA Championship will award prizes for Open, Masters, Grand Masters, and Senior Masters male and female winners.
Registration opens on October 9, 2017 and closes on March 31, 2018, or when the field reaches capacity. The field will be limited to the first 750 half marathon registrants and the first 300 marathon registrants. There will be NO RACE DAY registration. If spots are still available there will be a late sign up at the Saturday expo for $100 for both the marathon and half. Late registrants are not guaranteed a premium. If there are extra premiums late registrants can pick up one AFTER the race. The race field size is limited by our permit with the B & A Trail Park.
You may transfer from the full to half marathon or the half to full marathon at any time up to the close of registration on March 31, 2018. Simply log onto Active.com, locate your race registration and follow the instructions. There is a nominal $10 category transfer fee.
All medals were ordered on Monday 3/27, the current ship date is 4/17 with expected arrival to us on 20th. We will immediately mail them to the registration address of all runners who completed the half marathon and didn’t receive a medal.
Congratulation on finishing and thank you for your understanding and patience.
B&A Marathon and Half Marathon Race Directors,
Christian and Josh
Congratulations to all runners of the B&A Half Marathon and Marathon. Check out the results page to review results, awards, and race pictures. Also many thanks to the volunteers that helped make this race a success.
This year so many participants signed up in the last week of registration and during the expo that in the end, we exceeded last year’s number of finishers by 28%. The downside is that 4% of the finishers were unable to receive a medal because we ran out! The Annapolis Striders will be working to ensure that these finishers get their medals and race premiums. If you have concerns please email the race directors at email@example.com.
