Course

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
