(store credit will be given to the first 200 participants who registered for the winning store). Recruit your friends and family to help your shop win the team competition!
As an optional bonus, join MapMyRun to connect with your local community. You'll have the opportunity to join fun challenges based at each Charm City Run location. Here's how to get started:
Your store will add you as a friend and invite you to the challenge. Have fun competing with your fellow store friends to see who can accumulate the most mileage! Please note that you do not have to join MapMyRun to be eligible for the winning store team award.
100% of the race proceeds will go to our designated beneficiaries. Please consider making an additional donation during the registration process if you are able.

MFB is working proactively and collaboratively to meet rising food needs across the state during this public health crisis and beyond.
Your support will allow MFB to:
University of Maryland Medical System Foundation- UMMS COVID-19 Response Fund
As our state and nation respond to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) is no doubt on the front lines of this health care challenge and will do what is necessary to care for our patients, our workforce, and our communities. This is a time for us all to pull together. Every day, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases rises throughout Maryland. The need for philanthropic support has reached a new level of importance and urgency.
