Awards in the spirit of the run will be given to the first, second and third place overall male and female finishers in the 5.22 Mile Run.
Typical aid station food and drink will be provided and a drop bag area (uncovered) will be set up for those forging on in the Ultra Challenge. Since the only aid station on the course will be at the start/finish, be prepared. It is highly recommended for those running multiple loops to carry at least one water bottle.
Runners competing in the 8 Hour Ultra Challenge will have will have their results forwarded to Ultrasignup.com for inclusion.
Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club will donate the proceeds from this event, less modest expenses incurred, to the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation, a research foundation that "Provides help for patients and caregivers, advocates for those afflicted and educates those who don't understand." We will make this donation in the name of Rick O'Donnell, a friend and runner who lost his battle with Bile Duct cancer in 2013. The inaugural 2013 event raised more than $2,000 and we're hoping to better that this year. Since this is a fundraising event, no refunds for any reason will be issued.
Both events will begin at 8:30 sharp on race morning.
