City of Frederick prepares for Frederick Running Festival

FREDERICK-MARAHTON-2022

Thousands of runners and spectators will be on hand for the annual Frederick Running Festival April 30-May 1. It will start with a Kids Fun Run on Saturday, April 30 at 5 p.m., followed by the Twilight 5K race at 6 p.m. The 5K route begins at the Frederick Fairgrounds and will conclude at approximately 6 p.m. 

 

The featured event, the Frederick Half Marathon, will begin at 7 a.m. on Sunday, May 1. The race will start and end at the Frederick Fairgrounds, and a team relay exchange point will be at Hood College.   

 

The Frederick Police Department will provide road closure assistance for the half marathon using rolling road closures beginning at 6 a.m. The first road closure will be on E. Patrick Street at Franklin Street. Once a road is closed, residents will not be able to travel through that street until officers determine it is safe to reopen the street. We encourage all residents to review the race route provided hereto plan their travel schedules accordingly. 

 

The event will bring additional vehicular traffic and additional pedestrian and bicycle traffic with the runners, their supporters, and first responders protecting the community. The public will see a significant police presence all along the route, with additional traffic control devices such as cones, barricades, traffic signs, and variable message boards to help keep participants safe.  

 

The Frederick Police Department is also encouraging everyone to be vigilant and report suspicious activity. Suspicious activity should be reported immediately to the Frederick Police Department at 301-600-2101 or by calling 9-1-1.
