Lace Up for the St. Charles Running Festival on April 1


It’s back — one of the area’s favorite annual running events!

The St. Charles Running Festival is taking place on Saturday, April 1, in Waldorf. With a 10-miler, a 5K and a Kids Hero Fun Run, runners and walkers of all ages and ability levels can have a great time and support the Charles Regional Medical Center Foundation.

This fun annual event offers a USA Track & Field-certified 10-mile, 5K and fun run course that begins at Regency Furniture Stadium (the home of the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs) and takes participants through the community of St. Charles.

On top of the accomplishment you’re sure to feel, you’ll feel even better knowing that all proceeds will benefit vital technology upgrades for our Emergency Department, which is key to ensuring we can meet the health needs of our entire community.
