About the races:

The Charm City Run Kids X-Country Series consists of six 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! (no fee for parents)

There are six races in the series:

  • Gilman School - September 11th - (5407 Roland Ave., Baltimore, MD)
  • Loyola Blakefield -September 18th - (500 Chestnut Ave., Towson, MD)
  • Annapolis Towne Centre - October 2nd - (1910 Towne Centre Boulevard, Annapolis, MD)
  • River Hill High School - October 9th - (12101 Clarksville Pike, Clarksville, MD)
  • Sparks Elementary - October 23rd - (601 Belfast Road, Sparks, MD)
  • Baltimore - October 30th - (1713 Whetstone Way, Baltimore, MD)

All participants will receive a ribbon, and the top three girls and boys in each age group will receive a medal.

It is great to see kids be active, healthy and get support from family and friends while doing it. However, there's still an alarming issue regarding childhood obesity. Our sponsor partner, Saucony, supports the Run4Good Foundation, which raises awareness, funds and provides funding for programs to fight this issue.

Event Guidelines:

Please no baby joggers, strollers, roller blades, skates, bikes, dogs, pets or headphones allowed on the race course. Your race number must be worn on your front and must be visible. DO NOT exchange or give your number to another participant.
