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.
The Nikia Half Marathon & Relay is a 13.1 mile race with a 3-leg relay component
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 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.
