FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) January 24, 2020
The Frederick Rescue Mission invites the community to participate in its annual Mission 10 Miler event on Sunday, March 29, 2020 at 9 AM. The run is a 10-mile out-and-back course, starting at Nymeo Field/Harry Grove Stadium and leading runners through beautiful, scenic Frederick, Maryland. Known in the Frederick area as an early-season, premiere event, the Mission 10 Miler is a certified 10-mile course and chip-timed event with overall and age group awards. Online registration ($60.00 per runner) is now open at mission10miler.com and there is a $5.00 discount when participants use the code “SAVE5”.
The event will also include two additional race categories: the Mission 10 Miler 2-Person Team Relay and Mission 1 Miler. In the Mission 10 Miler 2-Person Team Relay, each team member runs 5 miles on the same course as the Individual 10 Miler Race. The relay race is also certified and chip-timed. The Frederick Rescue Mission will provide a shuttle to and from the relay exchange and ample parking will also be available. The Mission 1 Miler is a race designed as a fun run for all ages and running abilities. Online registration is now open for both the relay ($90.00 per team with $10.00 early-bird discount through the end of February) as well as the 1 Miler.
Finisher medals will be given to the Mission 10 Miler Individual and Team Relay runners. Runners in all categories will receive an athletic shirt. All race proceeds will benefit the Frederick Rescue Mission.
