|2012 Bagel To Beer Marathon|

38 FINISH 2012 BAGEL TO BEER|
Originated by Howard County Strider Tom Brown and friends in 2002 as a low key local race, the B2B starts at the Bagel Bin in Wilde Lake and finishes on the outside deck of the Ram's Head Tavern in Savage, MD. The race's motto says it all: "No Fee, No Medal, No Fundraising and No Whining." Aid stations are manned by friends of Tom and various families living on the course.
The race culminates with an outdoor deck party at Ram's Head Tavern. Beginning in 2011, Tom and friends abdicated operations and transferred the race to the Hero Friends running group. Hero Friends is comprised of about 50 local runners and Strider members including Dwight Mikulis, Greg Lepore and Hafiz Shaikh, Bromley Lowe, and John Bratiotis, who are the nominal race directors. They will strive to keep this race as laid back and enjoyable as Tom Brown and friends have over the past decade.
This year Adam Wytko finished first and may be (we're not sure) the only person ever to break three hours in the B2B Festival. He didn't get lost, that's for sure. Amanda An had nothing better to do on Saturday morning, so she was the first woman to finish. Official history and past results for all the B2B Classics can be found at www. bagel2beer.org.
