Hundreds of runners and volunteers take part annually in the Pikesville 5K, traditionally held at Woodholme Center in the heart of Pikesville.

This year the Miles That Matter Pikesville 5K is VIRTUAL. This virtual event is designed to inspire you to run in honor of our local heroes while having fun with your friends and family from anywhere in the world!

Join us for Miles That Matter, November 6th to the 9th.  The event will take place over 4 days to give you the flexibility to complete your run or walk, with enough time to submit your results. You can complete the event inside on a treadmill or outside on a course of your choosing. 

The Miles That Matter Pikesville 5K encompasses all that we do as a community to support one another. This year, that includes honoring our local heroes for their sacrifices in keeping us safe and healthy during a global pandemic. While we won't all be running together, the Miles That Matter Virtual Pikesville 5K makes it possible for anyone in the world-family, friend, running partner-to complete a 5K with you. You will be asked during registration for your location, which will be displayed with your results. You can even get creative with a virtual location! Start inviting others to join you on your Miles That Matter! Let’s see how far we can spread our gratitude for our heroes across Pikesville, Maryland, the country, and the globe.

In alignment with our mission to support our community, the POM Chamber is donating a portion of the proceeds from this race to There Goes My Hero, a 501(c)(3) that helps those impacted by blood cancer.

Sponsorships are tax-deductible and have the potential to reach thousands! For information on sponsorships, visit and click the 5K button.
