UNDER ARMOUR Tide Point Campus for post race celebration:

This year, we're finishing at Under Armour's World HQ in Locust Point! The post-race party will include live music, meals provided by Mission BBQ and one free LOCAL beer. 

Runner bibs will have a tear-off food tag to be used to "pay" for your meal of choice.

Once you finish the race you'll have a great meal waiting for you from our friends at Mission BBQ. Known for serving some of the best "all American food," you'll enjoy an entree with sides (including vegetarian options) to pair with our post-race beverages!

Runners 21+  will have a tear-off beer tag to be used to "pay" for your beer of choice. Please bring cash for any additional drinks. Choose from the following local breweries:


Diamondback Brewing Company

Diamondback calls Locust Point, an area in south Baltimore, Maryland, our home. In the old Phillips Seafood and Coca Cola facility we have brought industry back to our small neighborhood in Baltimore. We are looking to provide a hand-crafted and progressive approach to beer production. Our team works hard to create something that is unique and tells the story of who we want to be: adventurous and thoughtful. 

Key Brewing

Key Brewing Co.—its name a nod to the national icon from our native Baltimore area, Francis Scott Key—is the only brewery in Dundalk, Maryland. Key joins a burgeoning tradition of skilled brewers in the region and, of course, the incredible movement of skilled craft brewing across America. Look for a few of their locally made, approachable beers such as Helles Lager, Chesapeake Common and Spot Buy IPA. 

Charm City Meadworks

Led by Co-founders Andrew Geffken and James Boicourt, Charm City Meadworks is Baltimore's leading mead producer. Mead is a honey fermented beverage with various fruits, hops or spices added. Be sure to check out their new taproom soon, 407 E. Preston St. Baltimore, MD.  


"Known for its stout, a near-ubiquitous presence on bar taps around the world*". Baltimore County will now be home to a new Guinness brewery. This new location will mark Guinness' first brewing operation in the U.S. since the 1950s."


We're excited to welcome the What's Next to the race this year!
