2 water stops will be available on course at the following locations:

  • Water Stop #1 - MD Science Center (approx. 2.3 miles)

Portable restrooms will also be located at each water stop.

Course is subject to change.

Starting Corrals:

The race will be split into 4 corrals to space runners out and give everyone a great racing experience. 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 8:15 AM. 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!


Arriving late and scrambling to park in the morning is not a fun way to start your race, so take the time to make a plan now! 

Our friends at Harbor Point have opened up their onsite parking at a rate of $5 for race morning. If you plan to access this onsite parking please observe the following:

  • The underground lot and garage are ONLY accessible via Caroline Street to Dock Street (see map below). Please follow signage onsite to direct you to these two locations. Best GPS address to use is 1399 Dock St, Baltimore, MD 21231 VIA Caroline Street.
  • Please plan to be onsite in the 6:00 AM hour if you plan to utilize this parking. As streets narrow and traffic increases closer to race time delays will begin. You have been warned!
  • Access to these lots will begin to close at 7:00 AM, or as soon as they are full! We do not recommend arriving to the race after 7:15 regardless, but if you are delayed on race morning you will not be able to access these lots as streets will begin to close.
  • To expedite parking that morning you can download the Premium Parking app ahead of time, but we do not recommend pre-purchasing parking in case your plans change.

If you'd prefer more flexibility, you can check Spothero for nearby lots and pricing info outside of Harbor Point. Please do not use SpotHero to purchase the onsite parking mentioned above as you will not have access to the $5 rate.

The following lots near the venue will NOT be accessible:

  • Harbor East Parking Garage - 1530 Thames St, Baltimore, MD 21231
  • Premium Parking P2320 - 1401 Thames St, Baltimore, MD 21231

To minimize delays on race day we recommend planning to arrive no later than 7:15 AM. Give yourself extra time to account for traffic or other unexpected surprises city driving can present!



A bag check is provided for all registered participants. Bag check will be located behind Packet Pickup, on the West side of Harbor Point Plaza Greenspace. Bag check will operate from 6:30 AM to 11 AM.


  • Under Armour race premium (for those who choose the "with premium" option)
