Adventure run – Saturday, July 3

Here’s the scoop re: Saturday’s Adventure Run — hope you’ll join us!

  • Leg 1 – 6.6 miles: Start at ABC in Greenbelt at 6:30 a.m. to Glenn Dale Splash Park (arrive 8:15 a.m.).
  • Leg 2 – 4.4 miles: Depart Splash Park to Rte. 450 Starbucks at 8:30 a.m., arrive 9:30 a.m.
  • Leg 3 – 11.4 miles: Depart Starbucks at 9:30 a.m., arrive at Annapolis Town Centre at 12:30 p.m.
  • From the creators: Note that the final leg is challenging but not too long (11.4 miles) & the target average pace (15+ min/mile) is doable by many.


    ( ) = a “maybe running” for this leg
    [ ] = support but not running leg
    * = providing water at start of leg
    ** = water + driving to end to provide support/ride back!

    1. Ooh…I’ll do leg 2!

    2. One more note since there seems to be some confusion: This is not an official race or event. Just a group of people who wanted to run from Greenbelt to Annapolis who created the route and wanted to see if anyone wanted to join us. But like I said, I’ll gladly be the “support” after the first leg.

      If you’re a new runner and want to participate in the shortest leg (2), this also is probably the one where you’ll dodge the least amount of traffic.

      Post questions here or e-mail me (

    3. Whoever thought this up had a great idea! I’d so be with you guys if it weren’t for my school work…..and the fact that summer is a full semester’s work sandwiched into half the time.

    4. I’m running leg 1 and possibly leg 2.

    5. Credit for run idea goes to Dave F., Lydia and Gary! If this goes well, Dave, maybe we can do another run to a different part of the county when it’s a bit cooler out.

      Kianna and Sandra — see you there! 🙂

    6. I will run Leg 2…

    7. I’m running legs 1 and 2

    8. I will be dropping off my minivan in Annapolis and will be able to bring 4 maybe 5 (tight fit but doable) people back from Annapolis.

    9. Since Dave and I will be most likely be the only two doing the whole adventure run. We had two concerns, will there be someone willing to give us a rode back to College Park?

      Also, If possible, anyone who’s doing Leg 1 and planning to meet the rest of us in Annapolis for food and drinks, can I give you a bag of clothes for me to change into when I get to Annapolis?

      Can’t wait to do the adventure run with all of you guys.

    10. @ Gary – yes and yes. Not a problem!

    11. I will run leg 2

    12. I will most likely do the first leg. I would like to drop my car at the splash park and get a ride back to ABC. Pls let me know if anyone is able to do this. Thanks…

    13. I’m running leg 2. Also need to figure out how to get back to the start.

    14. I hope to do leg 1 and 2 and wondered if anyone else doing leg 2 has a ride back with a spare seat?? 🙂

    15. Sign me up for leg 3 (if I can get a ride back to my car). I’d be happy to bring any treats to the start of leg 3– let me know if you have any specific requests.

    16. Hmmmm…since I have running start, the only possible leg for me would be the 3rd and I don’t know if I’m up for 11+ miles. Hmmm….

    17. I really want to do it. Urghh. I need someone to promise to pick me up off of the asphalt if I fall out during the last leg. LOL

    18. @Cass — me! I’ll pick you up if you need to quit.

      Also anyone else needing a ride back after any of the legs, I can do that too. I’m just running the first leg.

    19. Planning on leg 1: can someone provide a ride back to ABC?

    20. Planning on running leg 1

    21. I would like to do leg 2 but need a ride back to the Splash Park (from Bowie) to pick-up my car. Is anyone available?
