Route description

The race is an out and back course primarily along the Northern Central Railroad Trail. The North Central Railroad was one of the first railroads in America, dating back to 1832. For 140 years, trains compacted and groomed what was to become our NCR trail. That’s a lot of compacting and grooming! No wonder it is perfectly packed dirt and limestone! The trail winds along the Gunpowder River, through quiet farmland. The start is at historic Oldfields School and will go downhill on Glencoe Road. approximately 0.8 miles to the NCR trail where it will turn right onto the trail and will go out and back along the NCR trail. Runners will enjoy finishing at Glencoe Road, wrapping themselves in their coveted NCR blanket, donning their cool medal, and appreciating a well earned 0.8 mile ride to the post race party at the renovated Oldfields Gymnasium!

Did the Half Marathon in 2019
Nice half and full. Done both. Volunteers are awesome and encouraging! Sometimes you may be all by yourself in this race due to it's smaller (than NY, Chicago, Balto) size....which I actually enjoy. Plenty of eats and treats, as well as Gatorade and water. Careful starting out....all downhill for most of first mile....I was reckless last year in the full and paid for it later. Really nice sweatshirt and blanket at the end. Medal this year was particularly neat as it was 20th anniversary.
