The 2nd annual Mother Catherine Academy (MCA) Spring Running Festival takes place on a rustic out-and-back course during the peak of spring. It starts on the Immaculate Conception Parish Hall grounds and proceeds north to the turnaround on the paved and newly-opened Three-Notch Trail in Mechanicsville, MD. The course runs past Amish and "English" farmlands and is flat, fast, and PR-friendly. Pets, strollers, and baby joggers are also welcome. The event benefits MCA's nationally-recognized Agricultural Lab and other school and community programs and projects. Register online or download, print, & mail the entry form.
