The swag was really the best part of this race (and the lab puppy waiting to give me kisses at the top of a bridge). Sweet socks and a journal in addition to the other typical runners goodies. The running through downtown Annapolis was a pretty run, but then the race went out onto closed down highways. Lots of pavement and little worthwhile scenery. It was hot, the concrete radiated heat, and at about mile 7-9 the water stops ran out of water. I don’t know that I would have finished it if I didn’t have my hydration belt.

Running through the mountains, and I do mean mountains, is no joke! There is some serious incline to this race, which makes for a pretty challenging 10K. I have much respect for those half, full and double-full runners!

Other than the course, the event is family-friendly and offers a lot by ways of celebration with concerts, local beer, and downtown festivities. There is also a kids race so I def recommend bringing the whole famly to this one.

Memorable Moments:
– Unofficial mid-race mimosas at the top of Mill Mountain
– Post-race snacks, beer and concert on the lawn

This was a very special place to run. The race wound through beautiful Amish country with entire Amish families lining the road and cheering the runners along. It was hilly and snowing which was challenging, but created a beautiful landscape.
