Registration Fees: Well, it's not free. But it is surely one of the cheapest races in town. Please note that the cost of your race entry is in no way proportional to the amount of fun you'll have running this race. If that were the case, well, this race would cost you a small fortune! All proceeds from the race support our Back on My Feet program, and the BoMF whom you will be running alongside.

Early Bird Registration through February 14th: Half-Marathon will cost you $30; Relay will cost $25 per relay runner

Regular Bird Registration Until March 19th: Half-Marathon jumps to $35; Relay jumps to $30 per runner

Last Call Registration Until April 2nd: Half-Marathon jumps to $40; Relay jumps to $35 per runner until noon on Wednesday April 2nd

Day of Registration: $45 Half-Marathon/$40 per Relay Runner

NEW Kids K

This year we are adding a 1K loop for the kiddos! Race will start at 8:30am and the kids will take a scenic loop through the Oldfields campus.  Headbands and ribbons for all finishers. Check out the loop map here

Facepainting for the whole family from 8am til 10:30am! 

Registration is $10. In advance, or day of.

Kids K FAQs

- Will I be able to see my child running the entirety of the course? No, the course loop ducks back behind the Oldfields school and then re-emerges to the finish.

- Is there an age minimum required to participate? Nope!

- Can I run with my child on the course? Surely!

The Nitty Gritty

Look out! The location change means that there are some rolling hills for the first and last .63 miles of the half marathon and for the first and last relay runners.

Learn more about the history surrounding the places you'll be running, here

*THIS COURSE IS NOT USATF certified but it is an official appoximation as deemed by Race Committee member Sean Ferguson's Garmin, as skilfully wielded by Race Committee member Greg Schwalenberg.

Relay Course: Relay exchange will take place at Monkton Station. Runners will be able to park along the Monkton Rd. shoulder.  We will have shuttles running as well.  Please note that it is likely that only the last leg of the relay teams will have a numbered bib.

  • 8:25am  - Shuttles leave for Monkton Station with all 2nd leg relays
  • 9:00am – Shuttles leave for Monkton Station 
  • 9:30am  - 12:00pm – Continuous shuttle service  pick-up at Monkton Station & drop off at Oldfields

Aid Stations: There are 2 aid stations located on the course, so you will pass by 4 in total at 3.25, 5.7, 7.4, and 9.85.  Water, Gatorade chews and Gatorade will be available at the aid stations.

Spot-o-pots: Who are we kidding, these are always runners primary concern.  There will be spot-o-pots at the race start.  There should be restrooms at Monkton Station, and 1-2 sparsely scattered along the trail.  

Awards: Including, but not limited to Half-marathon Overall Male & Female Winners, Half-marathon Age Group Winners, Top All Male Relay Team, Top All-Female Relay Team, Top Co-Ed Relay Team, Most Spirited Individual, Most Spirited Team, College/Uni that recruits the most students/faculty/employees, Best Waterstop on the course, Best Dressed,  Best Baton (All runners must RUN the relay, wheels and/or motorized vehicles are not acceptable batons. Baton must arrive at the same time as the runner.  Throwing the baton is not an acceptable way to signal the next leg of your relay team, or indicate you have finished the race.) NO CASH PRIZES. But more than just a high-five.

Timing: Timing will be performed by the dextrous hands of our race committee with very gracous help from the Baltimore Road Runners Club (Thank You!) and Dan Miranda's affinity for Microsoft Excel. By completing your registration, you waive the right to gripe over the hand-timed margin of error.

Runner's Premium: Who needs t-shirts? More running gear? You're all runners! You've got enough of that! What about NEON PINK sweatbands (show off your BoMF spirit!) and re-usable LIME GREEN bags.  We're so GREEN! 

Packet Pick-up: The MAC will be hosting packet pick-up for your convenience prior to race day. Packets can be picked up between 5pm and 9pm at the MAC Timonium at 110 W. Timonium Rd, Timonium, MD 21093 on Wednesday, April 2nd and between 5pm and 9pm at the MAC in Harbor East at 655 S. President St. #200, Baltimore, MD 21202 on Thursday, April 3rd. There will also be race day pick-up, but would strongly encourage picking up packets early if you are able!  Someone may come and pick-up your packet for you.

Also, the MAC has generously invited all those picking up their packets ahead of time at either the Harbor East location or the Timonium location to pack a gym bag and work out while they are there! 

K9's: In honor of our favorite team pups like Honey Dip, dogs are welcome to join the race.  They do not need a separate bib.  They must be on a leash as per NCR policy.  We just ask that owners be mindful of fellow runners as well as two way traffic on the trail. 

Training: Baltimore BoMF teams run Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 5:30am, as well as Saturdays at 7am. They have already begun a training plan for both the half-marathon and relay distances. Visit our Run With Us page to register for an orientation and more details on how to join.

Parking & Shuttles

Parking, as always is limited! Carpooling is STRONGLY encouraged.  Safe to say mandatory.  There are several different pockets on the Oldfields campus which we will be using to park, though it would be in your best interest to listen to the volunteers, treat them with the utmost respect, maybe even pay them a compliment or two so they can direct you to a safe and legal parking spot where you will not be towed.

Find a parking map of the Oldfields campus here. Please follow the instructions on the map; enter where indicated and fill in the parking lots in the numerical order in which they are labeled.

We will also be running a shuttle back and forth from satellite parking at Sparks Elementary School (601 Belfast Road Sparks, Md 21152). It is right off of the Belfast Road exit coming from 83.  Available parking is marked on the course map here.

Please note that the stretch of Glencoe Road between the NCR trail and Oldfields School will close down at 8:50am to prepare the course for runners.  If you intend to arrive after 8:50 for a 9:00am race, please take that into consideration. You will need to plan for a rather circuitous route to get to the race start.  

Shuttles will be running as follows:

  • 7:00am – 8:15am  - Continuous shuttle service pick-up at Sparks Elementary & drop off at Oldfields  
  • 8:25am - Shuttles leave with 2nd leg relays to Monkton Station. All runners running the 2nd leg of their relay team MUST BE on these shuttles.
  • 8:30am - Shuttles will continue to run from Oldfields to Monkton Station with relay runners. As finishing relay team members get back to Monkton Station, the shuttles will start bringing them back to Oldfields. 
  • 11:00am – 12:30pm – Continuous shuttle service pick-up at Oldfields & drop off at Sparks Elementary 

Look for shuttles to be marked with either a blue, green, or pink color in the window. Your pink shuttle's primary run will be between Sparks and Oldfields (offering additional help as necessary). The blue and green shuttles will be going to Monkton Station with the 2nd leg of the relay team LEAVING AT 8:25am. Our primary concern is getting these 2nd leggers to Monkton, so please make sure you get yourself on one of the buses! Destination/route will also be noted on the shuttle, or ask one of our friendly volunteers that will be riding the shuttles! 

Questions about parking? Get in touch with race committee member Sean Ferguson!
