About This Activity

The race began as the desire of Director of Outreach and Member Services Nikia Williams to run her very first half-marathon and turned into the creation of a race for her teammates and her Baltimore chapter to run alongside her.

Distance

The Half Marathon & Relay is a 13.1 mile out and back race with a 3 person relay component (3.25 miles, 6.6 miles, 3.25 miles). New this year is a Kids K loop around the Oldfields campus.

Half Course

Will be a 13.1 mile out and back course. Course will begin at Oldfields School and travel .8 miles along Glencoe Rd to where it intersects with the NCR trail. Runners will head NORTH on the trail towards Monkton and will run 5.75 miles out, turn around and come back.

Relay Course

Relay exchange will take place at Monkton Station. Runners will be able to park along the Monkton Rd. shoulder. We will have shuttles running as well. Shuttles with the 2nd leg runners will leave Oldfields School promptly at 8:25am.
