The Race Is On!


Although July is only partly over, September 1 will be here before you know it – and do you know what September 1 is?  That’s right – the ThorpeWood Trails 5K Fun Walk/10K Run.  This year’s event looks to be spectacular!

You can register, as always, by visiting this website and downloading the registration form.  If you are paying your registration fee by check, make sure to make your check payable to the Merle Thorpe, Jr. Charitable Trust.  This year, we are also offering online registration through  Simply follow this link to register online:  And, of course, day of registration will be available.

“What do the registration fees cover?” you might wonder.  Well, besides the costs associated with putting on the race, all proceeds will go to help offset the costs for the youth of the Frederick County YMCA to be able to come to our beautiful mountain retreat and use our amazing natural resources.  Think – kids fishing, camping, hiking, and working with horses in our Equine Assisted Learning program.  “You mean, my running in a simple 5K/10K can accomplish all that?”  YES!  And, thank you for your support of ThorpeWood.

Remember to register soon, and we hope to see you on the trails September 1st!
