We are working with the Maryland Park Service to confirm the course for the 2021 CCR 20 Miler. Traditionally the course has been point-to-point starting in Freeland and heading south to Paper Mill, finishing at the Ashland Marketplace Shopping Center. An alternate out-and-back course starting and ending in Freeland was developed in 2020 as an option to reduce bus ride time and avoid more congested sections of the trail south of Monkton Road. When the final course is selected we will post information on this page.


Cash awards to top three male and female finishers overall ($150, $75, $50); masters ($50); top three male and female finishers in following age groups: 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 and over.

Event Guidelines:

Please no baby joggers, strollers, roller blades, skates, bikes, dogs, pets or headphones allowed on the race course. Your race number must be worn on your front and must be visible. DO NOT exchange or give your race number to another participant.
