Back to the good old NCR for our long run this weekend! For those of you that don't know it, this is the premier running trail around Baltimore; cool, shady and flat. Half marathoners will run 11 miles and marathoners will take a break and run "only" 14.


We'll meet at 8 am at the Paper Mill Road parking lot. It's about a half-hour drive north of the city, so allow enough time to get up there. Sign up for carpooling if you need a ride or can provide one.


This route needs no explanation. It's a simple out and back along a straight line. There are mile markers alongside the trail, just keep in mind that since we're starting at Mi 0.5, subtract 0.5 Mi to every marker for accurate distance.


  • Forecast calls for clear skies and warm temps - bring water.
  • There are restrooms at Mi 0.5, Mi 3, and Mi 6.5.
  • There are water fountains at the start as well as in Monkton (Mi 6.5).
