Piece of Cake 2020

March 22 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am

Race Overview

Piece of Cake is more than twenty years old (March 24, 1996), and we would like you to join us in celebrating MCRRC’s birthday with a run through the scenic Seneca Creek State Park. You’ll encounter rolling hills on the park’s quiet roads — expect a few deer sightings along the way!!!

It’s best to enter the park between 6:30 am and 7:15 am to obtain a good parking space. Per Seneca Creek State Park’s strict request, the park’s BOOTH GATE WILL CLOSE SHARP at 7:30 am and will re-open at 9:00 am. We strongly suggest you consider carpooling, since the park has extremely limited parking and we cannot allow illegal parking. Parking illegally in the park will jeopardize our ability to obtain permits for future races. If you arrive at the Booth Gate at 7:30 am or later, you will be asked to park in one of its prior lots. It’s a 1/2mi walk/trot up to the starting line!
