About This Activity

COVID-19 Update – March 13, 2020

On March 12, 2020, Governor Larry Hogan decreed that all events over 250 persons be cancelled, to help curtail the spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) virus. We understand the need for the immediate cancellation of a few of our events, but we are hoping that THIS event will be outside of the timeframe. If the current State of Emergency encompasses our event, then we will have to re-evaluate the cancellation or re-scheduling of our event… BUT AT THIS TIME WE ARE STILL A GO FOR THE EVENT!!

What are we doing to help you decide if you should sign up… We are FREEZING all prices at their current rates. That means that there will not be ANY price increases for the events, until AT LEAST a week after the State of Emergency is lifted. This will allow YOU to decide when you sign up for the event, and to keep an eye on the situation.

AGAIN, at this time, THE EVENT IS STILL SCHEDULED and PRICES HAVE BEEN FROZEN. Should we have to take actions on the event, we will be reaching out to everyone, to explain the options available.


The Crab Run consists of a half marathon (13.1 miles) immediately followed by a 5k (3.1 miles) run, all from the grounds of Great Marsh Park, located at 0 Somerset Avenue, Cambridge. THE HALF MARATHON COURSE IS AN EXACT REPLICA OF THE EAGLEMAN 70.3 RUN COURSE, perfect for a cooler preview of the course. 

This race takes you past the Choptank river at the start before rolling out to the country roads of Dorchester County. For our endurance athletes, this is the same course that you will travel for the Ironman Eagleman 70.3 race in June, just about 20 degrees cooler! ;)

If you are looking for a challenge, why not sign up for the KING CRAB challenge? You must complete the half marathon in under 2 hours to make it in time for the start of the 5k. Do you have what it takes to make the time cut?
