STARTING CORRALS

The letter on your race bib corresponds to your starting corral. Placement in corrals is determined by the estimated pace you provided during registration. All runners should be in their corrals by 8:15AM. If you wish to run with a person who has been assigned a different corral you may move back to a later corral, but not forward to an earlier position. Volunteers will be in place to help guide you to the correct corral on race day!


TRAFFIC ADVISORY

Baltimore City Department of Transportation is planning lane closures on MD 295 as part of the ongoing Triple Bridges Project. Demolition of three bridges over MD 295 will necessitate a complete closure of the road in BOTH directions, and these closures are scheduled to occur on race weekend.

TO AVOID ANY DELAYS, PLEASE PLAN TO AVOID MD 295 BEFORE AND AFTER THE RACE.

Additional information on the project can be found on the project website.


EVENT GUIDELINES

Please no baby joggers, strollers, roller blades, skates, bikes, dogs, or pets allowed on the race course. If you choose to wear headphones please limit the volume so that you can hear race instructions as needed.
