Maryland Heat Race - 25K or 50K!!

Race Information:

A 25k or 50k all-trail running and hiking challenge and after party in Patapsco Park outside of Baltimore, MD. H.E.A.T.: High Endurance Adventure Test

Date: Saturday August 9th, 2014. Mark your calendars!

Goal: To FINISH (run, hike, walk, crawl) and have a GREAT time afterwards. Timing is secondary. The PARTY after is your prize!

Course Description

25k (16 miles) all trail. No loops. The 50k option is two loops. One long trail on varying terrain, mostly forest shaded. Everything from rock scrambling uphills to single track downhills, to mountain bike havens and as few fireroads as possible in order to get you back on lovable dirt enlightenment. Elevation gain is estimated at[masked] ft. The trails are very technical and challenging. A great course to hike, run, or both. Its really an adventure and a beautiful park. You won't know you are 8 miles outside Baltimore. 3+ Aid Stations with plenty of water and some food. Course markings and detailed maps are planned to be included.


Unlimited Kegs (until we run out anyway), pulled pork, burgers, hotdogs, Vegan offering. Horseshoes, Cornhole (if you dont know - now u know), Music, and Games. Race winners get bragging rights. We are renting three of the Patapsco Avalon Shelters, which have bathrooms nearby, a cold river for swimming on a scorching day, a pit for bbq, and plenty of space to enjoy ourselves.

      Sophia, if you still need a ride I will be coming from VA and taking 495 to the race. I can meet you some place off the beltway. But Rockville could work as well. Just let me know.
