MCA 5K WALK & RUN

The Montpelier 5K is back!

Get ready to run, jog, or stroll around our beautiful neighborhood while taking advantage of the crisp spring weather and other fellow runners and walkers to help you dust those winter cobwebs off.

The Montpelier 5K run and walk will be held, rain or shine:

Saturday, May 14, 2022.

There will be 2 events:

  • A kids fun run will start at 9 AM — this event is free and open to kids 12 and under.
  • The 5K walk and run starts at 9:10 AM — open to all ages, fee is $10 per person.

Online registration for the 5k walk and run opens February 14th.  Limited race-day registration opens at 8:00 am. 

Online registration will be through Runsignup.com, use this link: https://runsignup.com/Race/MD/Laurel/2022Montpelier5KWalkRun

The 5K run and walk will have one water stop, post-race munchies (coffee, bagels, etc.), and special awards and prizes for top finishers.

The 5K route (see map) will take you from the start at the Montpelier Community parking lot, winding through Oxwell and Eastbourne Lanes to Cedarbrook Lane, up the hill to Orwood Lane where the fun begins… speed through Mt Pleasant Drive into Eastgate Lane, up a wee bit on Silverbirch lane, and then a fast downhill on Briardale Lane to the finish!  This course has a bit of everything, well paved roads, clearly marked turns, some uphill, and a fast downhill finish.  It will be a blast 🙂

For information, please contact your event co-directors: Felipe Arzayus (kfl.arzayus@gmail.com) and Brad Gimbert (bgimbert@verizon.net).

Volunteering positions are welcome to help us with race day registration, course marshals and pre-post-race set up.
