March 16th update - the 2020 race is postponed
The 2020 Western Maryland Rail Trail Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K is now officially postponed due to CDC guidance issued on March 15th concerning groups of greater than 50 people. Frank and Mike of Altis Endurance Sports will work with our wonderful friends at Maryland DNR to see if we can reschedule this race to the fall. As soon as we have an answer on a reschedule date that information will be passed on to all you fantastic runners.
Every WMRT race entrant will have their race registration moved to the race schedule date whether that date is in the fall or next spring - with a likely date of the 2021 race being April 11th. With that said, all WMRT entrants are welcome to shift their WMRT race entry to another Altis race if desired. The Altis race calendar is at altisendurance.com/events. Please wait until the race has a reschedule date before asking to move your race entry to another race.
Again, as soon as the race has a reschedule date that information will be sent to you.
March 14th Covid-19 Race Update
As of March 14th there are no plans to cancel or postpone the 2020 Western Maryland Rail Trail race. With that said, the future is unknown and the Covid-19 situation is fluid. What is certain is that all race entrants can defer their 2020 WMRT race entry to another Altis race for any reason. The 2020 Altis race calendar can be viewed at altisendurance.com/events.
Race updates will be provided here when appropriate or needed.
