About This Activity

The South Mountain Heritage Society (SMHS) Spook Hill Cider & Wine 4 Mile Run provides participants the unique opportunity to run through historic Burkittsville, Union Cemetery, Boordy's South Mountain Vineyard and the Distillery Lane Ciderworks Orchard via a mix of paved and cross-country type surfaces.   Visit the participating wineries/cideries/eateries on the Spook Hill Wine Trail post-run! Come for the run, stay for the wine!

New for 2018 - Everyone will receive the traditional Spook Hill wine glass PLUS a cotton tee shirt included with registration! There will be the option to upgrade to a gender-specific technical fabric tee for a nominal fee during checkout.

Overland Timing will be bib-chip timing the 2018 run.
Accolades:  Spook Hill was named by Competitor.com in 2014 as a "Must Do" fall race in the Mid-Atlantic Region.  The race also appeared in the "Races & Places" feature in the October 2015 edition of Runner's World.  Spook Hill is also a Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club "Grand Prix Series" event.
