About The Capital 10-Miler
This 10 mile race benefits many area arts organizations. The event will start and finish on City Island, with the course including the riverfront, Capital Area Greenbelt, and the scenic bridges over the Susquehanna.
“Each year, the race attracts a lot of interest,” reports Mary Lou Harris, founding race director, who is a local marathon runner and regional arts supporter. “600 runners, on average, register to run and we expect more each year.”
Registrants over the years included runners from several Mid-Atlantic and New England states as well as local and regional participants.
The Capital 10-Miler is administered by Open Stage, a not-for-profit professional regional theatre, funded, in part, by the Cultural Enrichment Fund, the capital region's united arts fund. Open Stage is a Constituent of Theatre Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for American theatre.
