Are you ready to take on Rick’s Run – another fantastic race brought to you by Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club.

It’s a great race in loving memory of beloved FSRC runners, including Rick O’ Donnell, Larry Key, and John Godinet. These runners embody the traits we most admire: character, perseverance, kindness, and a profound joy in sharing their love of running.

The race is at a new venue this year – Milkhouse Brewery at Stillpoint Farm located at 8253 Dollyhyde Rd, Mt Airy, MD 21771

Three Events:

  • 5 Mile TrailThe 5 Mile Trail Run is a single loop of the course.  Awards in the spirit of the run will be given to the first, second and third place overall male and female finishers in the 5 Mile Run.  For Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club members, this event and the first loop of the Challenge events is scored in the FSRC Grand Prix series.  If you’re not a Steeplechaser, we invite you to join up and start having fun with us!
