Race for a Great Cause at the St. Charles Running Festival on April 9


Lace up your shoes, stretch out your legs and prepare to hit the course. That runner’s high arrives faster and lasts longer when you’re running for a cause this worthwhile.

The St. Charles Running Festival is Saturday, April 9, at Regency Furniture Stadium in Waldorf. With a 10-miler, a 5K and a Kids Fun Run, runners and walkers of all levels can have a great time in support of our Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services.

It’s more than a chip-timed race. It’s a day of fun activities for the family. It begins with pre-race stretching and energetic music before the 10-miler starts at 8:45am. The 5K starts at 9am, just outside the stadium, and the Kids Fun Run begins at 9:30am inside Regency Furniture Stadium. And remember, the race courses are stroller friendly!

All pre-registered participants receive a commemorative T-shirt. After you cross the finish line, stick around for post-race massages and healthy refreshments. Kids participating in the Fun Run will enjoy a Chick-fil-A kids meal and two tickets to a Southern Maryland Blue Crabs baseball game.

The Blue Crabs will host their annual Fan Fest in conjunction with the race, so children will have access to the playground at the Kids Park inside the stadium.

As good as you’ll feel after completing your run, it’ll feel even better knowing you supported a worthy cause. Proceeds benefit important UM Charles Regional Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services, like physical, speech and occupational therapy, as well as cardiopulmonary rehabilitation.

You’ll be helping us fund specialty equipment, enhance patient education programs and expand our clinical services in these critical areas. You never know when you or someone you love will need one of these critical services.

Register online today to guarantee your spot! It’s $35 for the 10-miler, $25 for the $5K and $10 for the Kids Fun Run. Prices increase on March 12. It’s a great reason to get out and enjoy a fun morning run. See you at the starting line!
