Are you as fast (or faster) than a Navy sailor? Join us on Sunday, October 7th for the inaugural Fleet Week 5K to find out! Run alongside visiting U.S., Canadian and British sailors and use your feet to see the fleet of visiting ships docked throughout the harbor. Runners will receive a Fleet Week t-shirt and those over 21 will receive a ticket for a free post-race beer – Heavy Seas Beer, Atlas Brew Works, and Union Craft Brewing will be on tap! It’s going to be a morning of fun festivities and excitement for all! After you cross the finish line, be sure to stick around for some snacks, drinks and awards and get ready for the Fleet Week Festival to kick off for the day. Bands will start performing shortly after the race, and Air Show Baltimore will have its full performance later in the afternoon!
