Perfect Weekend at the Rocky Gap Adventure Race!

Over 100 adventure racers were treated to perfect weather and optimal trail conditions at the eighth edition of the Rocky Gap Adventure Race held this past Saturday in Western Maryland.  Racers were tasked with navigating their way on foot, bike, and boat to find 21 checkpoints spread throughout the park. This 6 hour race required plenty of strategic decision making, good navigation skills, and tons of endurance.  Congratulations to all who rose to the challenge and attempted such a tough physical task! 

A big THANK YOU goes out to all the racers, volunteers, sponsors, and the park authority for helping to make it all happen.  

Results are now posted.  Photos are coming soon.

Rocky Gap Challenges Racers at XTERRA EX2!

Beautiful Rocky Gap State Park in Flintstone, MD once again played host this past Sunday to the 12th annual XTERRA EX2 Off-Road Triathlon and Duathlon.  Close to 300 athletes were treated to warm temps, sunny skies, and great trail conditions as they tested themselves on a fun and challenging course which included a .75 mile swim in a clear mountain lake, a 14 mile semi-technical mountain biking segment, and a quad burning 5 mile trail run.  Duathletes followed the same course except they began the race with a 3 mile trail run instead of the swim.    

Congratulations to all athletes for taking on the challenge of Rocky Gap and thanks to all the volunteers, sponsors, and park managers for making this event a huge success.  It was a great day of XTERRA action! 

Results are now posted.  Photos are coming soon.

Blue Crab Bolt is a Wrap!

Tons of fun was had yesterday as we wrapped up the 2015 Blue Crab Bolt Trail Running Series at Schaeffer Farms in Germantown, MD.  Athletes enjoyed perfect trail conditions as they negotiated rock and root strewn single-track, stream crossings, and challenging hills.  It was a great day of trail running action and nice ending to the series!  Thanks to all the racers, volunteers, sponsors, and the park authority for making it all happen.

Results are now posted.  Photos are coming soon.

Our next trail running race is not until September 13th at the kick-off the six race Fall Backyard Burn Trail Running Series.  For the remainder of the summer, we have our XTERRA EX2 Off-Road Triathlon on July 12th and the Rocky Gap Adventure Race on August 22nd.  Come out and join in the fun!

Blue Crab Bolt Trail Runners Enjoy Beautiful Little Bennett!

Close to 200 racers took on the challenge of Little Bennett Regional Park yesterday at the second leg of the 2015 Blue Crab Bolt Trail Running Series.  These beautiful, fun, and demanding 5K and 10K courses included twisty single-track, open meadows, wooded fire roads, and wet stream crossings.  Thanks to all the racers, volunteers, sponsors, and the park authority for helping to make it all happen.  What an awesome park and a wonderful day of trail running action! 

Results are now posted.  Photos are coming soon.

The third and final race of the 2015 Blue Crab Bolt Trail Running Series is on Saturday, June 20th at Schaeffer Farms in Germantown, MD.  The trails at Schaeffer Farms are VERY fun and wonderfully maintained and include twisty single-track, open field running, stream crossings, and several steep hills. Mostly known as a mountain biking destination, Schaeffer Farms has tons of semi-technical terrain that trail runners love.  Register today to join in the fun!
