Loch Moy Farm presents the Grand National People Chase 5K Run/Walk benefiting the Maryland International Equestrian Foundation.
Kick off Preakness Weekend & Run with Us!
The rolling, challenging 5K course will take you through the picturesque Loch Moy Farm used for over 40 equestrian competitions each year. Runners will be led out by a rider on horseback over grass before heading into wooded trails* along the Monocacy River. After emerging from the woods, runners will run along a grass field while enjoying views of Sugarloaf Mountain and riders taking their horses over cross-country jumps. The course continues crossing a short stretch (ten feet) on a gravel and paved driveway before heading on a wooded trail back to the grassy finish area. This course is spike friendly.
*Please note that some sections of the wooded trails will be single track.
Note: Strollers and wheeled devices are not allowed. Well-behaved, leashed dogs will be allowed on the course. Please be aware that your dog may encounter horses
