We are very excited to announce that the date of this year’s Trail Run will be September 4th. This is the 9th year for our 10K Trail Run and 5K Fun Run/Walk. It is our only fundraising event of the year. The proceeds help offset the costs of the EAL program we provide for the children in Frederick County’s YMCA Head Start Program. We love these kids and are so blessed to spend time with them here at ThorpeWood. We know the time they spend here impacts their lives in a positive way and we appreciate the opportunity to share our time and resources with these precious little people.
We think our Trail Run is unlike any other in the area. It is suitable for the whole family including your canine members. (Only leashed dogs are allowed and please come prepared to clean up after your pet.) It is also suitable for all levels of trail running experience. The trails are easy enough for beginners yet challenging enough for more experienced trail runners.
Pre-Registration is $20 for the 5K and $25 for the 10K. Click here for online registration. Or you can download and print a registration form here and mail to the address listed on the form before September 1st. Those who preregister will receive an event T-shirt and be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a one-night stay in our Pond Cottage. You may also register the day of the event. Day of Event Fees are $25 for the 5K and $30 for the 10K.
If you or anyone you know is interested in being a sponsor for this event, please contact Julie Castleman at [email protected], or call 301-271-2823.
Please help us spread the word by sharing with your friends and family. We look forward to seeing you in September!
