Let patriotic pride fuel you on this tour of one of America’s great seaside towns.

Once across the challenging but beautiful Naval Academy Bridge, racers enjoy an out-and-back section that allows plenty of racer-to-racer cheers and support, as well as views of Round Bay, an inlet off the Chesapeake Bay.
Post-race, shop the vendors at the expo in the end zone of the Stadium (when else do you get to feel like a running back and a runner?). Then enjoy your adrenaline- and Barefoot wine-fueled buzz while hanging out and listening to the Doug Segree Band. Register at www.zoomarun.com
