2020 Maryland Hunt Cup CANCELLED
In these unprecedented times, during the COVID-19 Pandemic,
the health of our greater community, volunteers, supporters and
participants is of paramount concern. Following Governor Hogan’s
executive order, banning gatherings of 50 people or more, the CDC
& WHO’s recommendations, and the advice of our professional
medical support team, the Maryland Hunt Cup Committee has
decided not to run our race in 2020. We wholeheartedly thank our
volunteers and supporters and look forward to returning in April 2021.
