MD Heat Trail Race

Patapsco Park, Avalon

Elkridge, MD 50K, 25K

This Event Took Place Sat. Aug 15, 2020

Standard Description

2023 entry IS HERE!
Running + Beer + BBQ = Be there! 25k (16 miles) or 50k all trail, and a rockin' after-party! One long trail run on varying terrain, mostly forest shaded. Everything from rock scrambling uphills to single track downhills, to mountain bike havens, numerous stream crossings and as few fire roads as possible in order to get you back on lovable dirt enlightenment. ~2000 ft of upward elevation on the 25k and 4000' for the 50k. The trails are very technical and challenging. A great course to hike, run, or both. It's really an adventure and a beautiful park. You won't know you are 8 miles outside Baltimore. 3 Aid Stations with plenty of water and some food. Aid for the 25k will be every 4 miles, so at 4, 8, and 12. Course markings and detailed maps will be included. The after party will include 20-30 varieties of craft beer, great food, and general fun! Event details at:

50k Info

Many will do the 25k, though the ultra 50k is growing more popular each year. This year we will be offering a new course that will be different, but no less challenging than previous years. Stay tuned for more details as we finalize the number and location of aid stations, etc!


As with previous years, parking will be OUTSIDE THE PARK! This applies to most runners, guests, spectators, etc. We have some select-few in-park spots and these participants will have applied and been emailed privately. If you are not one of these people, please do not enter the park. Volunteers and emailed participants are the only exception.
We will require that most runners and visitors make use of our shuttle buses or volunteer drivers to and from our parking area off of Rolling Rd: Park and Ride lot at I-195 and Rolling Road in Baltimore County

Bus fee and park entry are included in the ticket price. Bus shuttling will occur from 6am-9:15am, and then after this, volunteers and racers themselves will give rides to people back and forth. We urge runners to arrive 1+ hr early at the parking lot, so we can transfer tons of you before the race start time with a minimal number of bus rides.

Event's current local time: 3:32 PM ET
