Add the Frederick Running Festival presented by Frederick Foot & Ankle to your plans for the weekend of May 2-3 in Frederick, Maryland.
It is truly an event for the whole family. It includes the awesome Frederick Foot & Ankle Half-Marathon and Two-Person Relay, a twilight 5K, kids fun run and the Celebration Village. This is the 18th year for the Frederick Running Festival, which has grown and evolved into one of Maryland’s top spring running events since its inaugural in 2003.
The half-marathon course winds thru the historic town which features several Civil War relics and flat terrain. The event attracts 7,000 participants from nearly three dozen states. If you are ready for more than the half marathon, take up the Nut Job Challenge, and run the 5K Saturday evening and the half marathon Sunday morning — and earn three medals for your efforts.
In addition to Saturday’s expo, runners have the convenient option of picking up their bibs at three satellite locations earlier in the week at select Dick’s Sporting Goods locations.
The must-do race has earned a reputation for its high-end runner premiums, fantastic finisher medals, post-race party and seamless execution.
The festival also provides a great combination for spectators, with all events finishing on the track right in front of the Fairgrounds grandstand — and a lot will be happening while the races are in progress.
