Note: GOTR Fall 2019 Frederick County program participants WILL NOT need to register for the Candy Cane Dash-we are expecting you! In keeping with the GOTR non-competitive ethos, GOTR Girls will NOT be timed, and as such they are ineligible for any performance-based awards.

Frederick's favorite holiday season running tradition for the entire family!
