5K Trail Run
The 650+ acre campus of Bethesda Academy includes cattle pastures, marsh, a farm, garden, athletic fields, cottages, ditches, paths – making it a prime location for a trail run! Join us for a 3.1 mile run through this picturesque campus, which is not usually open to the public. The course follows marsh lines, tree lines, and passes cattle, goats, chickens, and the organic garden along the way. The trail will provide unprecedented access to Bethesda’s campus and you will develop an appreciation for trail running! “The Yates Astro Resolution Race 5K at Bethesda is one of my favorite local races, I loved dodging the cow patties, it reminded me of some of my high school XC courses in Ohio, and the pancake breakfast afterwards was delicious!” ~Shelly Tucker, C.R.E.W. Half Marathon Training Mentor
