With the 2015 Maryland Hunt Cup taking place April 25, The Washington Post Magazine looks at the globally renowned and dangerous tradition of timber racing, and the tight-knit community in Baltimore County that is trying to keep it relevant and expanding.

 

 
Roland Parker and Washington Post staffer Frances Sellers writes:
“The need to go both high and fast puts the Maryland Hunt Cup on a par with the world’s most storied steeplechase: England’s Grand National. But the race, which started in 1894 as a friendly challenge between two local fox hunts, is also deeply embedded in the lore and landscape of the valleys north of Baltimore where Alfred G. Vanderbilt once bred Triple Crown contenders.”
