  • Catonsville High School 421 Bloomsbury Avenue Catonsville, MD, 21228 United States (map)

Online Registration is now closed. Registration will be available at the Packet Pick-up session listed below as well as on-site pre-race.

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.

  • Gilman School - September 10th - (5407 Roland Ave., Baltimore, MD) - 3:30PM
