Fifth Annual 7k Run/1k Walk to Remember
April 7, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am$35
The Maryland State’s Attorneys’ Association presents the Fifth Annual 7k Run/1k Walk to Remember at Centennial Park on Saturday, April 7, 2018. The charity run/walk benefits the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence and coincides with National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (April 8-14, 2018). The race length (4.3 miles) represents one-k for every day of observance or remembrance.
The 7k run starts and finishes at the boat dock adjacent to the park’s Centennial Lake. The course will exit the park and run along MD Rt. 108 before returning to the park, following the bike path around the lake. Centennial Park is located at 10000 MD. Rt. 108, just west of U.S. Route 29 in Ellicott City. In addition to the 54-acre lake, the award-winning park features a 2.6 mile paved pathway around the lake and numerous picnic areas and pavilions.
The run is timed by Bullseye Running, with results posted on its website—www.bullseyerunning.com. Online registration is open now and closes on Wednesday, April 4 (walk-up registration is available the morning of the race). Registration for runners (and walkers) is $35.00 and all proceeds will go to the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence– the domestic violence coalition that brings together victim service providers, allied professionals, and concerned individuals for the common purpose of reducing intimate partner and family violence and its harmful effects on Maryland citizens. The organization accomplishes this goal by providing education, training, resources, and advocacy to advance victim safety and abuser accountability. For more information on the race and to register to run or walk, go to www.MNADV.org/2018RUN.
Participant packets will be distributed starting at 7:00 a.m. on April 7. The race begins at 8:00 a.m. Packets can also be picked up the night before the event—Friday, April 6 from 4 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.—at Road Runner Sports, 6630-C Marie Currie Dr., in Columbia/Elkridge.
Since the 2014 inaugural race and subsequent annual races, hundreds of runners and walkers from across the Mid-Atlantic have raised over $18,000 for the state-wide, non-profit organization that brings together victim service providers, allied professionals, and concerned individuals for the common purpose of reducing intimate partner and family violence and its harmful effects on Maryland citizens.
