Race Distance: 5.25 miles

The Big Gunpowder race is the 4th in the BRRC trail series, and, at 5 (ish) miles, also the shortest. But don’t let that fool you! There’s still plenty of excitement in those miles, including a killer climb at the start, probably a water crossing or two, definitely some mud, a few rocky sections, and some of the prettiest single-track around. Also, prizes for first overall male and female finishers!

Also, for the first time, this race is part of the Grand Prix Series. Yeah, a GPS trail race! The race is free for members, and $10 for non-members. Donations are appreciated and go to the BRRC to make it possible for us to continue hosting these great events! Registration is race-day only starting at 8:15 am in the parking area on the east side of Belair Road (on the side opposite the Gunpowder Lodge). The Race starts at 9 am.

If you can’t or don’t want to run, please consider volunteering, as it would be greatly appreciated (and will fulfill your GPS volunteer requirement). Please contact Erin Surette at erin.surette@gmail.com if you’d like to help.

Directions: 695 to exit 32B, Belair Road N.

Parking area is on the right. If parking is full, please park across Belair Road at the Park and Ride, next to our friends at the Gunpowder Lodge. This is free parking and you can safely walk through the underpass foot path to our race.

After your run, consider heading over to the Gunpowder Lodge for brunch!
