In August, the 32nd annual Frederick Women’s Distance Festival, hosted by the Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club, was back at Frederick Community College. There were 597 runners and walkers this year, including 91 who opted for the virtual variant of the event. The run/walk is a favorite in Frederick, demonstrating support for women’s running, health, and fitness, and raising money for the Women’s Giving Circle of Frederick County.
“It was wonderful to see our runners, walkers and volunteers back at FCC this year,” race director Harriet Langlois said. “The energy and support of this all-female event are unique and empowering.”
