Marylanders have a new event to add to their fall racing repertoire: the Hidden Treasures Half Marathon and 5K, scheduled for Sunday, September 12, 2010 on Maryland's picturesque Eastern Shore. Starting and ending at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center in Salisbury, Maryland, the new race is sponsored by the Wicomico County Tourism Office and begins at 8 am.
The loop half marathon course is flat and winds through Salisbury City Park, crosses the campus of Salisbury University, and takes runners through some back roads and neighborhoods in the Salisbury area.
September is a beautiful time of year to visit the Eastern Shore as well as the ideal timing for a full-effort tune-up for any fall marathons.
Other eastern shore fall events announced by OC Tri-Running Sports are:
Expect a Miracle Autism 5K Run - Saturday, August 28
The Seaside 10-Miler and 5K - Saturday, October 30
Online registration is available for all events.
