The 38th Annual Forest of Needwood Road Race will be run this year as a “virtual event”. The Church that normally allows use of the property is not open due to the virus. The race will can be run anytime between 3/13 & 3/21. The runner can use the actual Needwood course or run a 5 mile distance of their choice between the dates indicated. A race shirt will be offered for pick up in the near future.
The race is the oldest continuous road race in Frederick County. Needwood honors the memory and life of Capt. Jennifer Shafer Odem. Jennifer is Brunswick High graduate and graduate of West Point Military Academy. She gave her life in the service of our country in military assignment in 1999.
The race raises funds to support several scholarships awarded to Brunswick High graduates who have done track and cross country and plan to attend college.
