Resolution Run Prediction Run 8K

New Year’s DAY: January 1, 2024

Jeffers Hill Neighborhood Center

A prediction run is entirely different from other races that you’ve run in the past. Rather than finishing first or running the fastest, the object of a prediction run is to finish as close to a certain time as possible. In the case of the Howard County Striders prediction runs, the goal is to finish as close to 11:00am as possible. One way the Striders prediction runs differ from many other runs is that you get to start whenever you want – whoever finishes closest to 11:00am wins. Oh, and one important thing: you CANNOT use any sort of timing device. Also, no baby strollers, iPods, headphones, or animals.

After the run, enjoy refreshments in the neighborhood center while we announce the awards for the top 3 closest finishers.
