GPS Gunpowder Trail
May 26, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
RACE NAME: GPS Gunpowder Trail
DISTANCE: 5.25 Miles
DATE: 05/26/2019 at 8:00 AM
LOCATION: Gunpowder St Park, Belair Road
RACE DIRECTOR: Erin Surette
The Big Gunpowder race is the 3rd in the BRRC trail series, and, at 5 (ish) miles, also the shortest. But don’t let that fool you! There’s still plenty of excitement in those miles, including a killer climb at the start, probably a water crossing or two, definitely some mud, a few rocky sections, and some of the prettiest single-track around. Also, prizes for first overall male and female finishers!
This race is free to members, and $10 to non-members. Donations of $5 are appreciated and go to BRRC to make it possible for us to have these great events! Thanks! Registration is race-day only starting at 7:15 am in the parking area on the east side of Belair Road (on the side opposite Gunpowder Lodge). Race starts at 8.
This race is also the 3rd in the BRRC Grand Prix Series. Complete 3 of 9 GPS races to qualify for an award (must be a current member). That said, all runners are welcome!! You do not have to be a GPS participant to run this race.
If you can’t or don’t want to run, please consider volunteering, as it would be greatly appreciated (and will fulfill your GPS volunteer requirement)! Please contact Erin Surette at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to help.
