Thank you for participating in another successful race; it was great to hear so many positive comments and warm wishes.
Many runners familiar with the course may have noticed the mile markers seemed off. This was due entirely to a course error in the first mile in which the runners were allowed to proceed directly from the Start onto Evergreen Road, instead of turning left onto Robinson Road We immediately recognized the error and where able to make the necessary adjustments to the course by adding distance to the ½ marathon mid- point turn-around and an extension in the school parking lot. The effort was validated by dozens of runners’ GPS, which recorded the ½ and full marathon at very slightly longer than the required distance.
We have already begun the process of officially certifying the distances for both races and will send additional updates when the certification results are available.
We regret any anxiety this created for our runners.
Thank you for your patience in this matter,
Christian Zazzali and Joshua Harriman

Our finish line crew of Al Stott, Bob Burash, and Whitey Gross retired at the 40th Anniversary Run held December 9th, 2018. This team brought 49 years of combined experience to timing our races. Thanks to Al, Bob, and Whitey for keeping order as runners came full speed to the finish chute while getting our bib tear-offs, and for all the other support they have provided through the years.
The Annapolis Striders are now looking for volunteers to step up and learn the timing process. This job is interesting and important, which is why Al, Bob, and Whitey kept at it for so long. Interesting, because it allows you to see the entire field of runners cross the finish line in every condition, from completely exhausted to totally unfazed, and everything in between. But also extremely important! If we don’t have a finish line and timing crew, we don’t have a race! So please give it a try. Interested members please contact Dan Symancyk (firstname.lastname@example.org). The first race for the new crew would be the Cherry Pit 10-Miler in May.
