Seneca Creek State Park, Gaithersburg MD

REGISTRATION Opens Oct 1st, 2013!  Due to parking restrictions at Seneca Creek State Park only 800 runners are permitted in this race.  

We are sorry, but the race is sold out for 2013!  We are almost full on Volunteers as well.  All that is available is truck loading at 2:30 at the clubhouse on Southlawn (we then directly go to the park to unload).

If you're a registered runner, view your bib number for packet pickup.

The Montgomery County Road Runners Club, in partnership with the City of Gaithersburg, Maryland, invites runners and walkers to participate in a 5K run/walk through the City of Gaithersburg’s “Winter Lights Festival” in Seneca Creek State Park on November 23, 2013.

Winter Lights features more than 380 illuminated vignettes and 65 animated displays. Theme areas include Winter Woods, Teddy Bear Land, Victorian Village, North Pole, Toyland, and Penguin Cove. The event will be timed for those who wish race, however walkers are also welcome to participate. Age group results will be published, but there will be no physical awards.  Given that this is a mostly FUN event, strollers will be permitted but must start in the back.  There is no charge for the strollee.  Children must stay in the stroller at all times. There will be a 800 participant limit (runners + walkers) due to parking limitations.  Registration is $30 for both the chip-timed race and the walk until November 7. November 8 through race day, registration will be $35.

*** New this year ***  Bib and shirt/sweatshirt pickup will be held Friday Nov 22nd, 2013 from 4 - 8pm.  It will take place at the Activity Center at Bohrer Park 506 S Frederick Ave, Gaithersburg, MD 20877.

You can still pick up your bib prior to the race at Seneca Creek State Park.  The lines are long there, so be sure to allow enough time prior to the race start at 6:15!

When registering for the run you can purchase a wonderful Technical shirt for $15.00, Sweatshirt for $16.00 or Hoodie for $20.00.  We will only take preorders and they must be picked up from packet pickup Friday or at the run on Saturday.
