Groovin’ Woodstock 7K XC 2021
August 8, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Registration is OPEN!
A throwback to 1969! Wear your beads and fringe! For flower children we will be, doing the dung heap-hop to 60’s music in this challenging 7K, early on a summer day. Or, wear your silks and go for the Gold. The race takes place at the Woodstock Equestrian Center and features a hilly course, circling fields and dashing into the woods single-track on horse and hiking trails. Watch under your feet for rocks, roots, mud and … you guessed it. Whether you are in for the romp or in for the run, also-rans will also have fun!
Course Map & Location:
The Woodstock Equestrian Center is located at 20207 Darnestown Road (Rte 28, just beyond Bealesville, MD, going West) and the entrance is on the RIGHT, not the one you pass on the left.
See the Course Map.
MCRRC Members –
Registration is FREE, but all MCRRC members must pre-register for this race. We understand that this is different, but it is necessary in order for us to comply with our permit.
2020 MCRRC member bibs will be reused for 2021. If you had a 2020 bib number, you should have entered it during registration. If you still possess a 2019 (or older) bib number, please register here for a 2020/21 bib and edit your registration. If you don’t know if you had a 2020 member bib, or can’t remember the number, you can check to find your 2020/21 bib number here. (It will help if you know it for bib pickup, too!)
If you registered for a 2020 bib & chip, but were never able to pick it up last year, you can do so on race morning near the start area. If you newly registered for a 2020/21 bib & chip, it will be waiting for you on race morning as well. A volunteer will be on hand to assist you.
If you previously registered for a 2020 bib & chip, picked it up last year, but have since misplaced it, please send a message to email@example.com so a timer can re-assign your number.
Please note that anyone picking up a member bib & chip will need to pay a $5 chip deposit OR turn in an old (2019 or older) chip.
Non-MCRRC Members –
Registration will open to non-MCRRC members at a cost of $15 per race for participants ages 18 & over and $10 for participants under 18. Bib and chip pickup will take place on race morning near the start area. A volunteer will be on hand to assist you.
If you are a non-MCRRC member, and can no longer attend the race, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can move your registration to another MCRRC low-key event and open up a spot for someone else. Monetary refunds will not be provided.
During the Race:
While masks are no longer required, please be sensitive to those around you whose comfort level or health situation may be different than yours, especially to our younger participants who are not yet able to be vaccinated.
As a condition of our race permits, social distancing is still required. We suggest all participants keep a mask with you for use any time social distancing cannot be achieved.
Health & Wellness:
Now more than ever, please pay close attention to your health prior to attending this event. If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or another person with COVID-19, please stay home. If you have cold symptoms, a mild fever, or just “don’t feel well,” we ask that you please stay home. All participants are subject to temperature checks at the discretion of our race staff.
MCRRC is a volunteer organization and our events are fully staffed by the hard work of our volunteers. Without them, our races wouldn’t be possible. Volunteers are needed for this event. Signup to volunteer today!
