Charity Information

Benefits Manassas Battlefield Trust.

The Manassas Battlefield Trust is the official philanthropic partner of Manassas National Battlefield Park.  We are committed to the belief that “History Matters” and that it is our duty to the past and the future to preserve the places where America’s story happened.  Through education, advocacy, and philanthropy, we stand alongside the National Park Service in preserving this hallowed ground for this and future generations.

Manassas National Battlefield Park preserves and protects the Civil War sites of the First and Second Battles of Manassas. On these 5,000+ acres, more than 26,000 soldiers were killed, wounded, captured or went missing over 4 days in 1861 and 1862. Standing in their footsteps today, the power of this place cannot be denied.  Visit www.manassasbattlefield.org to learn more or to become a member.

Weather Policy

We are an all-weather race company (rain or shine or sleet or snow). We will email registered runners and post on social media if the race is cancelled, but this is quite rare, otherwise assume the race is taking place as scheduled.

Weekly weather reports are posted on the Thursday before race weekends on our Facebook page by Chad Merrill with the Hagerstown Almanack.  Race officials may delay, change or postpone the event due to weather conditions.  All registered runners will be notified via email of any changes.  In most cases, a decision is not made until the night before the race, and a decision could come as late as the morning of the event.
