The Germantown 5 Miler returns in 2022 to once again be a family-friendly fitness activity held in Germantown, Maryland, on Saturday, May 21st. This is our 20th and final running of the event! The race presented by Montgomery County Road Runners will benefit Sports Plus. The event, scheduled to run around Seneca Meadows Corporate Center in Germantown, will include a 5-mile, Ipico chip timed, race, a two-mile family fun run, and the Sports Plus 1K kids run. An important part of the kids run is that it will incorporate kids from the Sports Plus running program.
The beneficiary for the race is SPORTS PLUS a Montgomery County Maryland based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that offers year-round, uniquely structured, co-ed sports and swimming programs for verbal children and young adults between the ages of 5 and 17 able to follow simple directions with mild to moderate autistic spectrum disorders, ADD/ADHD and other developmental disabilities.
