HALF MARATHON - updated to 10K



 Pacers Running follows a health and safety plan which provides for certain protocols in the event of adverse weather.

We actively monitored the weather for race day and initiated our central command -- monitoring the weather with local and national authorities for the probability of thunderstorms late morning.

Considering the probability of a thunderstorm rolling in late morning during the half marathon we determined that in interest of safety we needed to shorten the event and therefore ran only the 10K for 2018.  We hosted an event with the 10K route and the post party which is in a covered portion of the stadium.

We switched all half marathoners into the 10K. If you were a half marathoner and prefer to defer to 2019, please send an email to events@runpacers.com BEFORE midnight Friday June 8.  Half marathoners who joined us for the 10K, will be offered a 50% code for the 2019 event.

The Land the Plane Fun Run was cancelled and refunds put into process.   However, registered kiddos or friends who wanted to join you through the finish and has their bib were invited to participate.

We apologize for any disappointment to our half marathoners but in the interest of safety we believe it was best to be cautious considering this summer storm and its race and travel safety implications.



Run through scenic downtown Annapolis Maryland in the inaugural Wayfarer's Half! The Half Marathon course features the best of Annapolis: charming architecture, harbor views, and historic buildings. It's the perfect introduction to Annapolis and a great reason for a weekend escape or to have the streets of your hometown to yourself for the morning.


Race starts at 7am on Saturday, June 2. Runners and spectators are encouraged to park in the Stadium parking lot where there is ample parking and convenient bag check right in your car!


The Half Marathon course loops around Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium and across College Creek past the State House, along Ego Alley, and along historic King George Street. From there, runners head up and over the Naval Academy Bridge that cross the Severn River. After a loop on Richie Highway, Wayfarer's will head home to the finish line at the Stadium. The course is scenic providing our Wayfarer participants with views of the bay, historic downtown Annapolis buildings and shops, as well as beautiful homes and rolling hills.
