Frederick Steeplechasers to Provide Support

In 2016 we will continue our long standing tradition of hosting supported on-course training runs to help you prepare for race day. With help from the Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club, we have scheduled two supported course training runs prior to race day. The runs are FREE and open to the public and will include varying distances.

All runs will start at 8:00am from the parking deck on E. All Saints Street. The parking deck is located at 125 E. All Saints St, Frederick, Md. 21701. After parking, meet near the creek outside of the parking deck. There are no bathrooms at the parking deck, so please stop elsewhere on your way if you need to go. You may park in the parking deck or across the street at The Frederick Visitors Center.

This is a casual group run, and is not timed or held on a closed course. Runners of all abilities/paces are welcome, but must obey all traffic laws. We ask that you run against traffic or on sidewalks for best visibility and safety. RUN AT YOUR OWN RISK. Feel free to add or subtract mileage if you are at a different training distance that weekend.

The Steeplechasers will provide post-race water and Gatorade. We suggest you bring your own gel and other energy supplements if you will need them. Hope to see you on Training Day!

This is not just an opportunity to see the course but to see where you would like to eat or stay the night before or the afternoon of race day. We will make sure to run through downtown Frederick’s historic district so feel free to ask your Steeplechasers hosts questions about any restaurants, cafes, pubs, or shops that you see along the way.
