DO THE MARYLAND DOUBLE
Great Savings and Incentives for Participating in Both Area Races
Since its inception in 2007 more than 5000 runners have taken the Double Dare Challenge by competing in the full or half-marathon in both the Frederick Running Festival and the Baltimore Running Festival
If you did not sign up for the Double when you ran in Frederick, it is your responsibility to tell us that you are eligible for the award (either by email, phone or letter) as we do not have the ability to cross reference the two runner databases. The Deadline for adding your name to the Maryland Double is Aug. 1, 2013.
Runners who complete these races in both events in the same calendar year are given a special third medal to add to your collection. These medals were quite a hit this year and serve as a worthy carrot to dangle during your training runs. Medals are distributed at the designated booth at in the Celebration Village on Race Day. We will have an on-site engraver who can place your name and times on your medal for a small fee.
Registering for the Maryland Double is easy. When you go to register for race day in Frederick, you will notice an option for the Maryland Double. Once you enter this page, you can choose from the full marathon in both, the half-marathon in both or another combination of these two races. Maryland Double Registrants recieve $10 off their combined entry fee (this discount is built into the posted prices on active.com) PLEASE NOTE: Using this special registration category is the only way that you can receive your $10 entry fee savings. No other discount offers apply.
Not sure you are ready to sign up for the Double quite yet? No problem. You can still be part of the Maryland Double if you register for the two events separately, but will waive the right to your discount. IMPORTANT: If you choose this route, it is your responsibility to tell us that you are eligible for the award (either by email, phone or letter) as we do not have the ability to cross reference the two runner databases. The Deadline for adding your name to the Maryland Double is Aug. 1, 2013.
