This Saturday we're joining the Howard Country Striders for their weekly Bagel Run: http://www.striders.net/bagel-run/. They always start exactly at 7:00 am so plan to arrive by 6:50 am sharp!


Columbia Swim Center
10400 Cross Fox Lane
Columbia, MD 21044


Running through the paths of Columbia can be pretty tricky for those unfamiliar with the area, so your best bet is to introduce yourself to the group, say how many miles you'd like to run and at what pace. There are usually so many people that it shouldn't be a problem to find a good group to run with.

If you prefer to fly solo, visit their website http://www.striders.net/bagel-run/ for some suggested routes and mileages.

It's a tricky course so either stick with a group, print out a map/turn-by-turn directions or upload the route to your Garmin. Please don't get lost.
  • This run is supported by the Striders, meaning there will be water stations along the way. Nonetheless I encourage you to carry your own water and sports nutrition.
  • The run ends at the Bagel Bin, a bagel shop near the Swim Center. We'll meet here after the run to grab some breakfast in traditional Bagel Run style!
