Shuttle Buses/Starting Line Info

Howard's 25K Run is a point-to-point race with the starting line located near the Frostburg parking area adjacent to the Great Allegany Passage. On raceday morning, we encourage runners to take advantage of the bus shuttle service to the starting line which will be provided. Buses will be leaving the Western Maryland Train Station from 6:00-6:15am. Be there before 6am as we will send buses as soon as they fill. Should you choose to travel privately to the starting line on raceday, please be aware we intend to start the race promptly at 7:00am. The GPS address for the starting race area is 10079 New Hope Road NW, Frostburg MD and is located just below the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad's Old Depot area in Frostburg. There will be no shuttle service after the race.

Potomac Farms Paws on the Pavement 5K: Since the course for 5K event is an out-and-back design, no transportation is necessary for the participants. The 5K will start at 8am at the origin ("0 marker") of the Great Allegany Passage in front of Western Maryland Station.
