The 10-Kilometer race is new for 2019.  The route was finalized in July 2019. It will follow the last 6.2 miles of the half marathon course.  

We reversed the half marathon course in the VAMC. Threfore the 10-Kilometer course will run along the water in the VA and cross the bridge once.

Awards

The chart below list the awards to be given within each category.  Gun time (clock time) will be used for Overall and Masters (40+) awards.    Net time (the time recorded by the timing chip) will be used for all age-group scoring and awards.

There will be NO duplication of awards. No double-dipping.  If the Overall winners (top 3 male/female) are over 40 they will be dropped from the Masters (40+) group awards.  The Overall winners and Masters (40+) winners will also be dropped from thier respective age categories.

Awards will be handed out the day of the race only. No awards will be mailed.  If there is an unforeseen circumstance that prevents awards from being picked up on race day, awards may be picked up at a designated location within two weeks.

To make this event even more special, the top three overall male and female runners will receive a hand carved decoy from a local artisan. 
After all, Havre De Grace is the “Decoy Capital of the World.”
