Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Annapolis Striders is making alterations to its early 2021 race schedule.
- The Eternal Winter 6-Hour Run is on! This race is already full. Any questions about this race should be directed to EternalWinter@annapolisstriders.org.
- The Valentine’s 5K will be transitioned to a free, no-frills virtual race. This race will not count towards the Championship Series rankings. This will be the graduation run for the current Beginners 5K training program.
- The B&A Marathon and Half Marathon is currently postponed. Once pandemic restrictions ease such that we can obtain permits with Anne Arundel County to safely hold a large event, we will revisit the scheduling of this race. We do hope to hold the 30th running of this race. Regardless we are currently holding a virtual Half Marathon training program for those interested in working up to half-marathon distance or improving their time.
- The Cherry Pit 10 Miler is also projected to be a virtual race. If virtual, this race will not count towards the Championship Series rankings but it will have a race premium (for a fee.)
The next race on the schedule after the Cherry Pit 10 Miler is Dawson’s Father Day 10K in June. It is our hope that we can hold this race in-person.
For those who look forward to the Championship Series rankings to resume, we also hope that we will begin scoring the series this year. The Championship Series rules accommodate races that we are unable to hold. If the Father’s Day 10K is the first Championship Series race we hold this year, then the scoring will begin with that race.
Stay healthy and safe out there.
