NyAnn's Purple Run 5K Race/1 Mile Walk/Fun Run

  • Ma & Pa Trail Williams Street and Ellendale Street Bel Air, MD, 21014 United States

Online Registration is now closed. Registration is available on race day morning.

Our good friend NyAnn Smith was a very sweet, kind, and giving person. NyAnn was an avid runner, and had a goal to run 50 races in her 50th year. She exceeded her goal and ran a total of 53 races. She was taken from us far too soon. On the second anniversary of her passing, we want to do something to honor her memory and giving spirit. We are having a race to benefit one of NyAnn's favorite charities, Anna's House. They provide transitional and permanent housing for homeless women and children in Harford County, and help them on the road to self-sufficiency. Their sponsor, Catholic Charities, is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization.
