Kids XC Series - Loyola Blakefield

  • Loyola Blakefield 500 Chestnut Ave Towson, MD, 21204 United States (map)

Come celebrate Halloween at Loyola Blakefield! Parents & Kids are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes for some festive fun!

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!

There are seven races in the series:

Catonsville High School - September 16th - (421 Bloomsbury Ave., Catonsville, MD) - 3:30PM

Annapolis Towne Centre - September 30th - (1910 Towne Centre Boulevard, Annapolis, MD) - 3:30PM
