Run, Run, Run

Run the 8K | 8:30am

8K Start

Start in historic Warner Circle, past Town Hall, and along Antique Row. After a flat, straight shot down Kensington Pkwy, head onto Beach Drive. But not too fast, as the infamous East Bex"hill" awaits, followed by a downhill sprint and return through Old Town.   8K Map.

Run the 2 Miler | 7:45am

2 Miler Start

Great for both runners and walkers alike, the route starts at historic Noyes Library,  circles the Warner Mansion, and then down onto Kensington Pkwy.  After a quick u-turn past Saul Rd., you go back around the Circle to a fast finish in Old Town Kensington.  

Run the 1K | 8:35am

A family favorite for all ages and abilities.  The walkable route starts just outside Noyes Library, circles the Warner Mansion, and finishes around the corner in Old Town Kensington.  Run, walk, carry, pull, cajole - however you finish, it's definitely fun for all.   

Strollers & Pets

Strollers are welcome in all three races.
We ask that you line up near the back to avoid interfering with other runners.  


Sorry!  Pets are not allowed in any race for everyone's enjoyment and safety.
