We are excited to say that we are returning for our traditional Sunday (Mother's Day) event!!! 

The Crab Run consists of a half marathon (13.1 miles) immediately followed by a 5k (3.1 miles) run, all from the grounds of Great Marsh Park, located at 0 Somerset Avenue, Cambridge. THE HALF MARATHON COURSE IS AN EXACT REPLICA OF THE EAGLEMAN 70.3 RUN COURSE, perfect for a cooler preview of the course. 

This race takes you past the Choptank river at the start before rolling out to the country roads of Dorchester County. For our endurance athletes, this is the same course that you will travel for the Ironman Eagleman 70.3 race in June, just about 20 degrees cooler! ;)

If you are looking for a challenge, why not sign up for the KING CRAB challenge? You must complete the half marathon in under 2 hours to make it in time for the start of the 5k. Do you have what it takes to make the time cut?

Packet Pickup

Right now the plan is to have Packet pickup on site ONLY, on Sunday morning.   We will be in under the 1st Pavilion at Great Marsh Park (0 Somerset Avenue, Cambridge, MD) and packet pickup will start at 630 am to 715 am. This packet pickup will be for the Half marathon and King Crab (both the half with a time under 2 hours and the 5k) participants. 

Traditional 5k participants may check in at this time but your start time is not until 930.
