We are having an in-person race this year. It is the 42nd year for the WDF & 37th year for the RATW. This is also the graduation race for the 5K Beginner’s group. You have the choice of registering by mail or online. There will be NO race-day registration. Premiums will be guaranteed to the first 200 applicants.
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.

Last year, over 2,000 runners representing all 50 states and three countries came together for the 20th annual Autism Speaks Potomac 5K, raising over $300,000 in support of the autism community. We are excited to carry that same energy forward to our 2021 event!
We are working with local and state government with the intention to bring you a safe, in-person event in Potomac, MD, as well as virtually across the country, on Sunday, July 4.
As we finalize all the details on our end, you can register for a place at the starting line! Starting today, through World Autism Awareness Day on April 2, you can take advantage of our early bird registration price of $25. Register as an individual or gather your family and friends to form a team!
With every mile logged, you are helping to create a world filled with potential for people with autism. We can’t wait to run with you in 2021!
The Crofton Kiwanis Club and Foundation are planning their annual community 10K and 5K races for Saturday, October 2nd. The certified 10K course includes a great tour around our tree-lined community with some challenging hills and is a great tune-up for fall marathon training or even first time 10K participants. The 5K course goes completely around Crofton Parkway. All profits from these races are put towards the many community charities that the club supports.
Please remember that ALL Annapolis Striders members are welcome at our monthly Board Meetings, the first Tuesday of each month 7:00 pm. Meetings are currently virtual.
