We are keeping our Virtual Race Option for those who are not local, cannot make it on race day or are just not comfortable attending an in-person race yet. Here is how the virtual race works:

Sign Up to Participate
First step is registering and making it official! Click register now at the top of this page to sign up for the individual race or all 6 races in the series. During registration you can also opt-in to report your race results via text or email (we’ll explain more below).

Receive A Race T-Shirt
During the registration process you will have the opportunity to buy a race themed t-shirt for only $15. We will provide more details soon about how we will get you your race t-shirt.

Print Your Digital Bib
We will be creating a "unique" race themed Digital Bib that you will be able to download and print and/or share on social media. Keep an eye out for pre-race email that will give instructions on how to access your "digital bib".

Sign Up for RaceJoy
To add to the virtual fun, we are also using the RaceJoy platform to offer a new way to run your virtual race! Learn more and download the app here! You'll be able to send cheers to other participants, get custom mile alerts and fun messages during your run, and automatically upload your results to RunSignup.

Run Your Race
You can run or walk your 5K (3.1 miles) anytime between November 19th and November 20th (11:59PM ET). You can run anywhere you like - your neighborhood, your favorite trail, your treadmill, or your local city park.

Submit Results
After you run or walk your race you can submit their results through text or email (if opted in during the registration process), or directly on the results page. If you have questions about submitting results don't hesitate to reach out to us at Results automatically update as times are submitted, so you can check the results to see how you stack up against the competition.

Send Us a Selfie/Share Your Pictures!
If you don’t take a picture did it even happen? We’d love to see your pre- and post-race pictures! Share them on social media using the hashtag: #charmcityrun


7AM - Packet Pick-up Starts
8AM - Race Start
9AM - Award Ceremony


Top Male and Female runners will receive prizes from Baltimore City Rec and Parks and Charm City Run.


Enjoy the fall views with an out and back 5K along the trails at Herring Run Park. The winding trail follows Herring Run through a woodlands environment so peaceful you're likely to forget you are in a major city just steps from busy US 1. The trail offers a great opportunity for spotting wildlife, including the foxes, hawks and other fowl that call the park home.


A portion of the proceeds from the $5 5K series benefit Baltimore City park programming.
