About This Activity

The 2nd Annual Zaching Against Cancer 5K begins and ends at the Howard County Fairgrounds.  This out and back course begins with a challenging climb from the fairgrounds to Rte 144 and then has a wonderful stretch on the grounds of the Heritrage Farm Museum on a crushed stone roadway.  The course ends with a fast downhill where you will be greeted by the live music of the Cancer Jam Live music festival.  All registered runners receive free admission to the all-day festival featuring several top live national tribute bands along with the most sought after regional and local bands.  Since 2012 Cancer Jam Live (formerly Woodstoc ROC) has been bringing together bands, food and fun all to help raise funds and cancer awareness. The charity for the 2015 event is the Zaching Against Cancer Foundation.  More more info on CJL, visit
