Health & History in the 21713

Last year, we celebrated the 225th Anniversary of Boonsboro with a special 2.25 mile event. This year, we're keeping the festivity alive with the town's first official 5K :) The 3.1 mile course starts in Shafer Memorial Park and highlights the beautiful past & present of our town - including Boonsboro Cemetery, Sycamore Run, Shafer Park Nature Trail, and a chance to glimpse the cemetery behind Trinity Reformed United Church where town founder William Boone lays at rest.

Official timekeeping (chipped) will be provided by Overland Timing, but 'Boone'Walk & Runners are encouraged to enjoy the race at their own pace. Families, strollers, and dogs are welcome! Post-race festivities will feature commemorative awards for top finishers, sponsor promotions, and a range of munchies.
Proceeds benefit the Boonsboro Historical Society. Race funds support local student programs that advance historical education and preserve town heritage.
