About This Activity

On November 1, 2014, Glen Mar will be hosting its annual 5K, benefitting the Howard County Food Bank (Rain or Shine). PLEASE NOTE: This event was originally scheduled for October 11, but has been moved to November 1. On the 5K Run and 1-Mile Walk, there will be opportunities for runners, walkers and teams to navigate the course that will have participants cover the streets surrounding the church. Following the race, everyone will be welcome to enjoy coffee, tea, juice, bagels and muffins.

The Glen Mar Family 5K and 1-Mile Walk will be a great motivation for those of you looking to get in shape, for families looking for a fun activity to do together, or for runners looking to compete in a fun, friendly atmosphere, all for a good cause. Spread the word to your family, neighbors, friends and co-workers about this Fall's Glen Mar Family 5K and 1-Mile Walk.

Participants in the 5K may create or join a team. Teams must consist of at least 3 participants. The times of the top 3 participants for each team member will count toward the team's total time. All participants will have their run/walk times on the 5K course individually recorded; however, times for 1-Mile Walk will not be recorded.

Registration will be limited to the first 350 participants, and those who register before October 23, 2014 will be guaranteed event t-shirts.

Participants are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for donation to the Howard County Food Bank.

Any individual or business interested in sponsoring the event should contact Connie Ballenger at 410-796-0290.
