On Sunday October 2nd 72 stalwart runners braved the cold and rain. It was amazing to see so many people smiling and enjoying themselves at the end of their run. As always, a giant thanks goes out to all the volunteers who helped make this race a success.

The flat, scenic course winds through the woods with gorgeous views of the Chesapeake Bay. Portions of the paved path contain tree roots, potholes and other natural hazards. There are raised edges at either end of the wooden bridge.
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.
Stay tuned to the E-Streak for future meeting locations.
