Ronald McDonald House Charities of Maryland

The Happiest Morning in Maryland is right around the corner! Celebrating its 12th running, the Red Shoe Shuffle is back on Aisquith Street on Sunday, April 16, 2023 at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Maryland. This year, we're running for the kids. Plain and simple. By joining together as one super (and red & white striped!) community, we show our RMH families both past and present that even when the going gets tough, they have the strength of thousands - literally! - at their backs, ready to cheer them on. 

Register today as an individual or consider making a team with your family, friends, or co-workers because teamwork makes the dream work! Our family friendly 5k course starts at the Ronald McDonald House and takes Shufflers through downtown Baltimore along the Harbor and back up to the Big Heart at the House. After the race, plan to stick around for Celebration Village, which will have fun activities for all ages, food vendors, live music, and special guests!

All registered Shufflers will receive a special race-day running shirt, 2023 RSS medal, plus some great RMH Shuffle swag. To all of our all-star fundraisers out there, we're bringing back fundraising incentive gifts as a way of saying, "we think you are awesome!"

So, what are you waiting for? Let's lace up, Maryland! We'll see you at the start line.



Register for the event here starting January 3, 2023!

Early-Bird Adult Registration (13 and over) is available for $40 from January 3 - January 31, 2023. Price increases to $45 on February 1, 2023. Registration includes a race-day shirt, RSS 2023 medal and race-day swag bag (shirt and swag are also included for Child Registration).
