As the city is just getting back to normal following the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix, another race is about to roll into town: The Under Armour Baltimore Marathon. The marathon is just one facet of the Under Armour Baltimore Running Festival that kicks off today with the Baltimore Sun Health and Fitness Expo at the Baltimore Convention Center, which is open to the public and free of charge.
This year’s Running Festival will feature 25,000 runners from all 50 states and 24 countries. The field of 25,000 is the largest ever in the 11-year history of the event. All the adult races are completely sold out, and waiting lists have been created for some of the races. This marks the fifth straight sell-out of adult races.
