Is this the Zooma Annapolis event?

After 10 wonderful years bringing together women in the DC-metro area, Zooma Annapolis has entered a new phase in its life. Zooma has since passed the torch to Pacers Running to usher in this new era in Annapolis running with the Wayfarer's Half.

Guidelines may change as required by weather, police availability, and other safety concerns and, while rare, can happen as late as prior to/during the event. Please email events@runpacers.com prior to registration to inquire about consideration of any needed special circumstances.
