Most memorable quote so far: "I love running hills, but that was mean and totally uncalled for." - Finisher in the chute, 2002
A torturous race by runners for runners through Baltimore's famed Druid Hill Park, beginning and ending at the Moorish Tower and traversing the most wicked hills to be found in the Baltimore Metropolitan Area.
Wheeled vehicles prohibited on course
Due to the narrow, steep, winding roads wheelchairs and baby joggers are not permitted in this event. There are abrupt drop-offs, deep eroded streambeds, and old quarrys that border the course. Losing control of any wheeled vehicle on the 20%+ grades is easy and potentially deadly.
New Course for 2012
We had to change the classic DDH course due to an ongoing construction project. This year the course map may be found at: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5496220

Also, flatlock seam construction for even more comfort. This will become your favorite running top for the rest of the summer!
