Course Details - Potomac Farms Paws on the Pavement 5K

Potomac Farms Paws on the Pavement 5K is a course designed for participants that are interested in a shorter event that is easily attainable running or walking. The course begins at the origin or "0" of the Great Allegany Passage in front of Western Maryland Station. Participants will traverse the last 1.55 miles of the Howard's 25K Run course to the southern edge of the Narrows before turning around and retracing their path back to Western Maryland Station.

To qualify as completing the course, participants must finish within a 1 hour time limit. That is approximately a 19:20 pace, so someone that would be run/walking the course would easily complete it. Even walking the entire course, it could feasibly be completed at a moderate walking pace.

The lone aid station is located just shy of the 1 mile point at the Valley St. underpass and is shared with the 25K participants (aid station #6 for the 25K course).  We do encourage runners with more significant hydration needs to carry additional supplies on person. We will guarantee the distance to be accurately measured, however it is NOT USATF certified and will not qualify for official records as recognized by that body.

Portapots/johns: A portapot is located near the aid station at Valley St. Public restrooms will be available that morning adjacent to the Crabby Pig Restaurant at the Shops at Canal Place.
