The Charm City Run Kids X-Country Series consists of seven races for girls and boys 12 and under. While top runners in each group win medals, the series is intended to be a fun, non-competitive, family-friendly introduction to running and all runners will "win" ribbons. Parents are welcome to run with their kids to encourage them and perhaps get a little exercise themselves!

- Gilman School - September 10th - (5407 Roland Ave., Baltimore, MD) - 3:30PM
- Catonsville High School - September 17th - (421 Bloomsbury Ave., Catonsville, MD) - 3:30PM
