All summer XC 5K races are free & open to the public. This year the host school will be requesting a $5 donation. This donation is NOT mandatory but will help defray the school’s XC teams’ expenses. A waiver must be signed prior to competing and runners under 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign the waiver as well. Race day registration begins at 6 p.m., and the race will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Starting in July, there will be two (2) XC races on Thursday, July 18, 25, and a rain make-up day (if needed) on Aug. 1st.
Please check the Annapolis Striders Facebook Group for cancellations before each race in case of inclement (excessive heat) weather.
