Resolution Run
The entire family can begin the New Year by participating in the 5K Run or 1 Mile Walk on a course entirely in beautiful Patterson Park with pre and post-race activities at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church Hall across Baltimore Street from the start/finish line. Walkers are particularly encouraged to join runners in an afternoon of exercise and fun - a great way to start 2010.

The program provides long-term housing and supportive services to homeless men and assists them with the transition to permanent housing and re-entry into society as self-sufficient and productive citizens.

A prediction run is entirely different from other races that you've run in the past. Rather than finishing first or running the fastest, the object of a prediction run is to finish as close to a certain time as possible while completing the official course. In the case of the Howard County Striders prediction runs, the goal is to finish as close to 11:00am as possible. One way the Striders prediction runs differ from many other runs is that you get to start whenever you want - whoever finishes closest to 11:00am wins.

Important note: You CANNOT use a watch, coaching, or any timing aid. Also, no baby strollers, iPods, headphones or animals.
