Advisory: Maryland’s Finest Fitness Challenge Cancelled Over Weather Concerns

(PIKESVILLE, Md.) — Out of concern for the safety of our competitors and staff, the Maryland’s Finest Fitness Challenge, originally scheduled for April 7 as Assateague State Park, is being cancelled due to the impending inclement weather.

Maryland State Police are currently exploring the possibility of rescheduling the event and you will be notified if a new date becomes available. There will also be another Fitness Challenge in the fall and we will notify you when the details of that event are finalized. Thank you again for your interest in the Maryland’s Finest Fitness Challenge and the Maryland State Police. We hope to see you at one of our future events.

Despite the cancellation, the Department is still actively recruiting people interested in a career with the Maryland State Police. For more information on career opportunities, including troopers and civilian openings, visit our careers page at:

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
