About The Event

Background

image6

Founded in 2000 as part of the Maryland RRCA Grand Prix Series, the event grew rapidly to the point of thousands of participants from both RRCA clubs and non-affiliated running groups such as the Baltimore Pacemakers, Black Girls Run, NCR Trail Snails, Moms Run This Town, Hash House Harriers, and many other running clubs and groups.  But you do not have to be a club member, just someone who enjoys a five-mile run or walk during the Winter Solstice season through Baltimore's famed Druid Hill Park.

This run has a reputation as a race by runners for runners.  Race volunteers come from the various running groups around Baltimore.  The post-race party features hot soup by Chef Tim Mullen, hot Wassail Wine from Boordy Vineyards, hot coffee and hot chocolate from Zeke's  Coffee, holiday cookies from Trinicria Bakery, live Celtic music by Charm City Junction, bagpipes, Irish Wolfhounds, and plenty of Holiday cheer!
