2021 Race For the Trails Virtual 10-Mile Race
Our Mission is to promote, protect & enhance
the trails in Anne Arundel County.
Proceeds of the race will be used to support that mission. The Ten Mile 2021 Race For the Trails will be a Virtual Race on the BWI Trail, which circles BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport. The race may be run individually between Saturday, February 13 and Saturday, March 6, 2021. Runners have a choice of running 5 miles, turning around and returning to the starting point or running to the 10-mile marker, recording their time and then continuing around the circuit back to the starting point. The race may be used as a training exercise for the Annapolis Striders 2021 Marathon and Half Marathon.
Registration will open on January 30th and will remain open through March 5th, 2021
Runners completing the course may send a selfie of themselves with their name and finish time to [email protected] Those photos will then be posted on the Friends of Anne Arundel County Trails Facebook page.
