In View of the Finish Line!

trophyThe ThorpeWood Trail 10K/5K Run/Fun Run/Walk is just a day away.  On August 31, we will welcome you all here to the mountain to take part in our seventh running of this fantastic event.   We are getting so very excited!

A few reminders:  first, this morning is the last time to register online.  Just click this link and register through  Not only does this guarantee you the lowest price AND a t-shirt, but it saves you a lot of time on the day of the event.  We are way past the number of pre-registered participants from last year, so we have already beaten those impressive numbers.  And you know that we are dedicated to making this year’s event bigger and better than ever!

Secondly: there is no packet pick-up the day before the event.  All you have to do is show up on August 31 and you can pick up your bib and shirt that morning.  Pick-up begins at 8 a.m., and the event kicks off at 9 a.m.

Remember, if you choose to wait to register until the day of the event, that is fine, but the cost does go up by $5 for each of the distances.

Third:  We just want to thank our sponsors one more time for their generous support.  We honestly could not do this event without you, so again, a big thanks to – If the Shoe Fits; The Common Market; Flying Dog Brewery, The Trail House, and Frederick Foot & Ankle.  A gigantic thanks to our $500 T-shirt sponsors, Frederick Town Realty and Frederick County Bank (FCB). Please be sure to visit these wonderful businesses before and after our event!Finally, all participants will receive a door prize ticket with their registration. If interested in purchasing additional door prizes, please be sure to bring cash with you. Door prizes will include an overnight stay at our Little Pond Cottage, a $150 value!

IF you decide to bring your favorite K-9 friend, PLEASE be sure to have him/her on leash and have plastic bags to pick up after them. 🙂

Remember, this run is family friendly and for ALL AGES!!

Looking forward to a spectacular event.  Can’t wait to see you all on the mountain!
