September 6 is fast approaching, and we could not be more excited about this year’s ThorpeWood Trails 5K Walk/10K Run. This little beauty you see on the left is a picture of the front design for our shirts this year. We think it turned out great! Sure hope you are participating and have secured yourself one of these beauties. They are only available for preregistered participants! You can preregister online by clicking here. They will be sold for $10 each after the race…so bring cash!!
One of the best parts about our event – other than the tremendous cause it goes to support and the fantastic course we offer our participants – is that we attract the most incredible range of sponsors for our event, every year. Most of these sponsors are repeat supporters, which truly means the world to us; and some of this year’s sponsors are brand new, and that means the world to us as well. We truly appreciate the support and resources these sponsors give to this event and know it would not be the same event without them!
- Frederick County Bank (better known as FCB)
- Alice Hoxie, Frederick Town Realty
- Draper & McGinley, P.A. CPA
- Flying Dog Brewery
- The Trail House

When you finish on the course, you can enjoy a beverage courtesy of Flying Dog Brewery, and eat a banana from the Common Market while participating in a raffle drawing for a gift card from The Trail House and If the Shoe Fits, as well as other various fun items. If interested in an overnight at ThorpeWood’s Little Pond Cottage be sure to bring cash for a $5 raffle ticket! From behind the scenes support, to day of delights, our sponsors are second to none! We thank them for their support!
As in past years, we will be awarding the 1st, 2nd and 3rd finishers in the 10K timed Trail Run, for both Male and Female participants! We’ll also award our youngest finisher (male or female) with a special prize!
Hope to see you all on Sunday, September 6. Remember that while registration is open online you can also register the day of beginning at 8 a.m. Looking forward to seeing you all on the mountain!
