If you don’t take a picture did it even happen? We’d love to see your pre- and post-race pictures! You can post them during the result reporting process or directly to the RunSignup photo page.


Mother Seton Academy (MSA) is a tuition-free independent Catholic middle school that serves low income families in Baltimore City.  The School of the Cathedral created a relationship with MSA over 25 years ago as a way for the families of the school community to give back to low income families in Baltimore City.  We are proud to continue this annual tradition with MSA!
