The series, in its 34th year, consists of three introductory/development cross-country meets in Bel Air, on
Oct. 1, Oct. 15, and Oct 29, 2023. Open to all boys and girls under age 14, it is named in honor of Bill Brown, 1951 Pan-American Games gold medalist, NCAA 880-yard run champion, and successful Harford County coach and physical education teacher from 1952 to 1983.

This introductory running series has been held each fall at various parks in and around Bel Air for the past 32 years. Named for Bill Brown, a world-class half-miler and outstanding coach from Bel Air, the series includes three meets for boys and girls under the age of 14. Races are held on Sunday afternoons two weeks apart and are conducted in five age groups: a quarter mile for ages 5 and under; half-miles for ages 6-7, 8-9, and 10-11; and a mile for ages 12-13. A short warmup and clinic on the basics of training and racing is held at the beginning of each meet.

Races are held Sunday afternoons with registration beginning at 3 p.m.
