The Annapolis Ten Mile Run
The Annapolis Ten Mile Run is a 10-mile foot race organized by the Annapolis Striders, Inc., a volunteer, non-profit organization. The race is conducted according to the road racing guidelines of the Road Runners Club of America.
The race has been listed as one of the top ten 10-mile races in the country by Runners World Magazine. It is a beautiful run through historic Annapolis and over the Severn River. Notice: This is not a race you are likely to set a 'PR.' It is a tough race with a hilly course run in the heat and humidity of a Chesapeake August. Please be sure you are properly trained.
