2021 Cherry Pit 10 Mile Race
Sunday, April 11, 2021
You may register anytime before midnight
on April 11, 2021.
Unfortunately this year, we will NOT be able to hold an in person race. This is a virtual race to be a 10 mile course of your making. You do need to register for this race.
You may only enter your results on April 11th so be sure to enter them before midnight on the 11th.
You have NOT missed the Champ Series. Since this is a virtual race, it would not be included in the series. Once we are certain we will be able to have in-person races, we will make an announcement about the Champ Series and registration.

Update On Early 2021 Races
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Annapolis Striders is making alterations to its early 2021 race schedule
  • 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 Half marathon training program program for those interested in working up to half-marathon distance or improving their time.
  • Cherry Pit 10 Mile Race will be a virtual race (see information above). 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.
