Location: Silver Spring, MD (Long Branch Community Center)
Start Time: 8:00 a.m.
Description: Proceeds from the race fund youth programs in Long Branch. This year all proceeds will be donated to the Art o' Mat afterschool program run out of Rainbow Laundry.
Course: The race starts at the bottom of Branch-Garland Neighborhood Park. From there the racers will head down Long Branch Trail, cut into Haddon Drive, and then across Houston Avenue. At the bottom of Houston a race marshall will direct racers to turn right, heading up Sligo Creek Parkway. Just before Piney Branch, participants will turn around and head back down Sligo Creek Parkway, passing the Houston intersection. A race marshall will be standing at the turn-around point (about where Maplewood Avenue runs perpendicular to the Parkway). The racers will turn back up Sligo Creek Parkway and take a slight right back on to Houston Avenue. The route continues across Houston, up Haddon, and using Long Branch Trail will end the race back at the starting line in Branch-Garland Neighborhood Park.
