Events and Attractions

The hard part about putting together an events page is keeping it updated.  Various clubs and management organizations have their own events that they publicize, but they exclude other events.  Plus, races come and go due to a variety of factors.  So what we have here is a page with a listing of some events that Falls Road is involved with, some events through other clubs and management firms.  Usually, Paul Walters of the Maryland Running page does an outstanding job of compiling a Maryland-wide list on his site at
