About This Activity

The 1st annual Mother Catherine Academy "Green Thumb 5K" takes place on a rustic and scenic out-and-back course during the peak of spring. It starts on the Immaculate Conception Parish Hall grounds and proceeds directly north to the turnaround on the paved Three-Notch Trail in Mechanicsville, MD. The course runs past Amish and "English" farmlands and is flat, fast, and PR-friendly.  Pets, strollers, and baby joggers are also welcome. The event benefits MCA's nationally-recognized Agricultural Lab and other school and community programs and projects.
