Mercy Run to Remember 5K & 11K presented by Brooks - CANCELLED

We are disappointed to announce that the 2020 Mercy Run to Remember 5K & 11K presented by Brooks has been cancelled. With the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic and Baltimore City's need to prioritize essential services, a large gathering in the City is not feasible at this time. While we explored the option of a virtual race, we would be unable to match the unique experience that is the Run to Remember 5K & 11K. It just would not be the same without the singing of Amazing Grace alongside the 9/11 Memorial at the starting line, or the gathering with friends and family at the finish atop Federal Hill. Current registrants have been sent an email with options for their registration fee. We appreciate your support and patience as we waited to make this decision, and hope that 2021 brings much better circumstances.  It will be the 20th anniversary of 9/11, and we've got big plans.
