Rosaryville 50K Ninth Annual
Rosaryville Veteran’s Day 50K
SATURDAY, November 10, 2018, 8:00 a.m.
at Rosaryville State Park

The race will close out at 200 participants
The course is basically three loops around the Rosaryville State Park perimeter trail. The course is mostly in deep woods, though there is some running in meadow also. The trail is largely single track; not very technical. The Start (also the Finish) is at the pavilion picnic area about three quarters of a mile from where the runners enter the single-track perimeter trail. Good food after the race.
The course has two aid stations about 4 1/2 miles apart. There will be a bag drop at the first aid station. We will transport bags from the Start to the bag drop site when the race begins and return them to the pavilion after the race–or you can pick up your bag as you leave the park.

To volunteer or for more information, contact Race Director, Tom DeKornfeld or
Volunteer validation available.
