The annual Run for the Light House provides scenic half-marathon and 5K routes along the trails of Quiet Waters Park and through the beautiful Chesapeake Bay-front community of Hillsmere Shores. This race event is unlike any other in the greater Annapolis area!

*Returning in 2019 due to popular demand – 1.25 Mile Walk/Donut Dash!

All proceeds from the Run for the Light House will benefit the Light House in Annapolis, a well-known public charity working to end the cycle of homelessness and poverty. The race is organized by the Friends of the Light House, Inc., also a public charity, and timing and race management are provided by T3 Race Management.
