9th Annual Blue Crab Bolt
The Blue Crab Bolt Trail Running Series is back for round nine! Similar to our Backyard Burn races, these 5K and 10K courses are fun and challenging and include a mixture of winding single-track hiking trails, stream crossings, grassy fields, and minimal pavement.
Race in one, two, or all three. After each race, awards are presented to the top five finishers in each age group. In addition, a point system adding competitor’s three-race point totals will be used to determine the top five series finishers in each age group. Series prizes and awards are presented at the final race of the series.
This summertime series will undoubtedly be super popular. So, register early to join in the fun and claim your spot on the starting line.
All races begin sharply at 8:00am with check-in starting at 6:30am.
