The Baltimore Road Runners Club, which had been active in the production of the Maryland Marathon, will hold a marathon Nov. 24, race director Dave Cooley said Sunday.
The race is not a replacement for the Maryland Marathon, which has been canceled for this year. Called the North Central Trails Marathon, the run will begin at Sparks Elementary School at 9:30 a.m. and finish on the trail.
"The club's interest is not to replace the Maryland Marathon but to keep the BRRC involved in the tradition of a marathon," Cooley said. "The idea is to have a marathon in the Baltimore area."
Cooley said certification by The Athletics Congress is pending. The race is limited to the first 250 entrants. Entry fee is $13; race-day fee is $18. All entrants will receive a long-sleeved T-shirt. All finishers will receive a certificate and printed results.
For information, call Cooley at 494-8649.
Start on Sparks Road near Sparks Elementary School; west to York Road; north to Lower Glencoe Road (right) to the entrance of the North Central Trail; balance of the course is on the trail; finish is on the trail near Sparks Road.
