Please keep in mind that Glencoe Rd. will be CLOSED COMPLETELY from 8:15 - 8:45am for the race start.

Directions to Course Stops

Course description: Course will begin at Oldfields School and travel .63 miles along Glencoe Rd to where it intersects with the NCR trail. Runners will head NORTH on the trail towards Monkton and will run 5.92 miles out, turn around and come back. You'll start the race with a nice, steady downhill the first .63 mile, a flat majority of the race and a nice steady uphill .63 mile on the return trip to the finish line.  

*THIS COURSE IS NOT USATF certified but it is an official approximation as deemed by Back on My Feet Garmins.

Relay Course: Each relay team will consist of 3 teammates, each running one leg of the race: 3.5 miles, 6.1 miles and 3.5 miles. Relay exchange will take place at Monkton Station. There will be shuttles running to this exchange point.  Please note that it is likely that only the last leg of the relay teams will have a numbered bib.

  • 7:55AM  - Shuttles leave for Monkton Station with all 2nd leg relays
  • 8:30AM – Shuttles leave for Monkton Station 
  • 9:00AM-11:30AM – Continuous shuttle service pick-up at Monkton Station & drop off at Oldfields

Aid Stations: There are 2 aid stations located on the course, so you will pass by 4 in total at 3.25, 5.7, 7.4, and 9.85.  Water, Huma gels and Gatorade will be available at the aid stations.

Spot-o-pots: Who are we kidding, these are always runners primary concern. There will be spot-o-pots at the race start and at the bottom of the hill. There will also be restrooms at the Monkton Station (relay exchange), and 1-2 sparsely scattered along the trail.  

Furry running companions and strollers are allowed – we want the whole family to join! We just ask that you be mindful of two way traffic as well as other non-racers out on the trail. Dogs do not need a separate bib.  They must be on a leash as per NCR policy.

KIDS K FAQs
  • What time will the Kids K start? 8:00AM
  • Will I be able to see my child running the entirety of the course? No, the course loop ducks back behind the Oldfields school and then re-emerges to the finish.
  • Is there an age minimum required to participate? Nope!
  • Will my child win a prize? YES! First 10 kids will get cookie awards. Remaining children will receive another prize.
  • Can I run with my child on the course? Surely!

POST RACE PARTY

Get excited for Bimbo Bakery snacks, Baltimore Coffee & Tea, Iron Rooster bacon and pop tarts, and PIZZA from Toss! There will also be bagels, pastries, fruit, water, and gatorade at the end as well.
