The Downs Park 5 Mile Run is a loop course on paved trails at John H. Downs Memorial Park. The flat, scenic course winds through the woods with gorgeous views of The Chesapeake Bay. Parking, bib pickup, refreshments, start and finish are all located in or near the Fernwood Pavilion at the end of the park road.
The course is mostly in deep woods at Rosaryville State Park, though there is some running in meadows 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. Hot food after the race starting about 11:30. The race will end at 4:00pm.
The course has two aid stations. There will be a bag drop just before the second aid station, a short walk from the Start/Finish.
The Anniversary Run is a double loop course on paved trails within Quiet Waters Park. A few hills and a winding path through the woods make for an interesting morning. Portions of the paved path contain tree roots, potholes and other natural hazards. There are several wooden bridges on the course that may be slippery. Please use caution on this course, and especially on the bridges.
Annapolis Striders membership is required to participate in these training programs. There is no fee for the training programs but you must register.
Additional information about training programs may be found on the Annapolis Striders website.
