2022 Annapolis Ten Mile Run will be the Road Runners Club of America’s Maryland state championship race for the 10 mile distance!

Spring is almost here, and more people will be using the trail. Walkers, bikers and, yes, runners! Please remember to stay to your right, announce yourself before passing (but only when clear to do so), no more than two runners side by side and most importantly, be considerate of others. Please set an example for others to follow.
