Take a Run Through Maryland History
It’s not often that a half marathon can take you back in time.
But not all races are like the St. Mary’s Historic Half Marathon. Starting at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, the half marathon takes runners through Maryland’s first colonial capital and North America’s best preserved English colonial archaeological site, Historic St. Mary’s City.
This race is appropriate for all experience levels including first-timers. A 5K race will follow after the start of the half marathon.
The race will take place Sunday, April 30, at 8 a.m., beginning at the St. Mary’s City Visitor Center. The 5K race begins at 8:05 a.m.
