The Navy has approved the use of Greenbury Point for Endless Summer 6 Hour Run on
July 31, 2021. More details to follow!

After much consideration, the 2021 Annapolis 10 Mile Run will not be held this year.
Many factors drove this decision, but ultimately it came down to the inability to be assured in the current environment that we could have a traditional A-10 in August, and provide the special experience that the runners, volunteers, municipalities and spectators have come to expect.
Like you, we are disappointed, but we will have the 2022 Annapolis 10 Mile Run on the traditional last Sunday in August, August 28, 2022.
We want to thank everyone for supporting the Annapolis 10 Mile Run for the past 45 years, and will work hard to make it an even more special event in 2022.
