This is a prediction race, so participants may not wear watches. Leave 'em in your car, your gym bag or at home. The winner is the runner who runs closest to their predicted time. Note: FSRC Grand Prix results will be based on actual finish time.
Where: Eastview Clubhouse on Oakmont Drive in Frederick
Why: Because you love the challenge of running wicked hills in freezing weather (it builds character)
How much: Free for Steeplechaser members, $10 for non-members. Must be a member on race day in order to get the discount, so if your membership is going to expire before then, you'll want to renew before registering for the race. Members will be credited with a $10 discount during the online registration process. Members and non-members may register on race day, although it's easier for all of us if you pre-register. If you’re not a club member, we encourage you to join for $20 to enjoy many other benefits throughout the year.
IF YOU NEED TO RENEW YOUR FAMILY, TWO IN HOUSEHOLD, OR INDIVIDUAL+JUNIOR MEMBERSHIP, PLEASE GO TO https://runsignup.com/fsrc TO RENEW, THEN COME BACK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE RACE. YOU CANNOT RENEW A MULTIPERSON MEMBERSHIP IN THE SAME TRANSACTION AS SIGNING UP FOR THIS RACE.
What else: The Lewis Run is our early season race that we love to hate. Prizes go to the closest predicted time and front runners receive our admiration and a hearty slap on the back. Course is paved but REALLY HILLY!
Breakfast: Bring a food item to share. (We run to eat, right?)
Directions: From Rt. 40 (West Patrick Street in Frederick), turn onto Waverly Drive by the Frederick Town Mall. Follow speed bumps to Shookstown Road. Go left and begin to climb. Watch for Lakeview Drive on the left, but don’t turn on it. Make the next left onto Oakmont Drive (it’s hard to see). Go down a steep hill to a lake with a clubhouse on the left. That’s it!
