Frederick County Parks and Recreation is hosting their annual Battlefield Half Marathon and Relays today.

The 13.1 mile race starts at the Kernstown Battlefield in Winchester at 8 am.

The course then travels along a scenic stretch of Middle Road which will be closed 7:45 am- 11:00 am.

Portions of Apple Valley, Germany, Shady Elm, Springdale Road and Saratoga Drive will also be closed for the race so plan to take an alternative route if traveling through the area.

Awards will be given for the top competitors individually and relay teams with the top male and female finisher’s taking home $750.
