St. Charles, MD



Sunday, April 17, 2011

Event Details

The beginnings of one of the country's earliest planned green communities is taking shape in Charles County, Maryland, which is also one of the nation's fastest-growing areas and will serve as the site of the second annual running of the St. Charles Half Marathon, 5K Run/Walk and One-Mile Fun Run in the spring of 2011.

Part of a series of half marathon race events that will take place throughout the year under the USRA Half Marathon Series, the St. Charles Half will feature a mixture of both streets and trails through this southern Maryland community that lies just 22 miles from the White House in Washington, D.C.

Open to runners, walkers and participants with strollers, the half marathon and 5K race will take participants through the St. Charles community, along a course that will show off the areas now being developed which will become schools, homes, apartment communities, retirement communities, retail stores and more.

The morning of the race will see the start of the half marathon at 8:00 AM, followed by the 5K Run/Walk at 8:15 AM and the Fun Run at 9:00 AM. This race is part of the USRA Half Marathon Series, which includes half marathons in Columbia, S.C.; Bentonville, Ark.; Mount Pleasant, Wis.; Lexington, Ky.; Council Bluffs, Iowa; Bloomington, Ind.; Joplin, Mo.; Purdue University, Ind.; Clarksville, Tenn.; Lancaster, Penn.; Stockton, Calif.; and Flagler County, Fla.

Race Weather & Climate

Located among the villages and farmland areas of southern Maryland, roughly 32 miles south of Washington, D.C., the town of St. Charles typically experiences weather conditions much like its neighboring town of Waldorf, which sees mild to moderately cool weather in the spring, with generally drier weather during the month the race is held than in March or May. In April, the town's average monthly temperatures range between 68°F and 43°F, while rainfall amounts average just over 3.1 inches for the month.
