Charm City Run is turning 15! Please join us on June 10th in Timonium to celebrate with a timed $15 5K, sponsored by our good friends at Brooks. Brooks is picking up ALL of the race costs, which means that your entire $15 registration fee is going right to our deserving race beneficiary, Living Classrooms.

The race will start and end in our Timonium store parking lot. At the finish, runners can enjoy coffee from Baltimore Coffee & Tea and a complimentary snowball from Peaches Snowball Truck! Other local businesses will be on site to talk injury prevention and nutrition.

THANK YOU for your support these past 15 years. We couldn't have made it without you and we truly hope you'll come celebrate with us on June 10th.


ENTRY FEES

Your $15 fee will go directly to Living Classrooms and includes entry into the race, race t-shirt and a snowball at the finish!

Beneficiary: Living Classrooms

Founded in Baltimore in 1985, Living Classrooms Foundation has grown into an educational and economic force that combines one of the city's most cherished assets - its beautiful and historic harbor - with some of its most overlooked - the thousands of bright, ambitious children and young adults who are struggling to succeed against terrible odds. What began with one program in one city has grown into dozens of programs across a region that now encompasses Washington, DC, Virginia, and Maryland.

Living Classrooms has developed a distinctive competency in experiential learning -- literally learning by direct experience -- or what we call "learning by doing." These experiences take place at many "living classrooms" on our various campuses, including maritime museums and ships, and in neighborhood and community settings.
