TRAFFIC ADVISORY - UPDATE!

UPDATE: Baltimore City DOT has advised that this project has been “postponed” and all lanes should be flowing as normal on race weekend.

The Baltimore City Department of Transportation would like to advise motorists that a weekend closure of MD-295 (Baltimore-Washington Parkway) and traffic pattern changes are scheduled for mid-April as part of the Triple Bridges Replacement Project.  A complete closure of MD-295 is necessary for the demolition of the Annapolis Road Bridge superstructure. 

Beginning at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, April 12, 2019, both north and southbound MD-295 will be closed to through traffic between Bush Street and I-695 with detours in effect, weather permitting.

During the closure, all southbound Russell Street traffic destined for MD-295 will be detoured onto I-95 south, and all northbound MD-295 traffic will be diverted onto I-695 to I-95 north.

TO AVOID ANY DELAYS, PLEASE PLAN TO AVOID MD 295 BEFORE AND AFTER THE RACE.

Additional information on the project can be found on the project website.

STARTING CORRALS

The letter on your race bib corresponds to your starting corral. Placement in corrals is determined by the estimated pace you provided during registration. All runners should be in their corrals by 8:15AM. If you wish to run with a person who has been assigned a different corral you may move back to a later corral, but not forward to an earlier position. Volunteers will be in place to help guide you to the correct corral on race day!

All runners walking from McHenry Row to the start must access their corrals via Porter Street - there will be no access from Whetstone Way (near the finish line).

PARKING

Parking will be available on race day at several locations:

McHenry Row Parking Garage (very limited spots available). This garage is only accessible via Jones or Porter Streets.

Please note that access to McHenry Row from Key Highway will close to car traffic at 6:00am on race day.

Parking will be available in the Under Armour Lot on the Key Highway Extension across from Domino Sugar, as well as the Under Armour triangle lots off of Hull Street.

Street parking is also available in the surrounding areas, but please pay attention to all parking signs and be respectful of the neighbors.

We encourage using Uber/ LYFT to get to the race. "Kiddie Academy of Locust Point" is a good destination to get you close to the race village.

Please leave our partners' properties better than you found them. To be able to use this parking is a huge benefit to the event and we want to have this privilege in 2020 and beyond. Please help us return all lots and spaces as we found them. Thank you!


EVENT GUIDELINES

Please no baby joggers, strollers, roller blades, skates, bikes, dogs, or pets allowed on the race course. If you choose to wear headphones please limit the volume so that you can hear race instructions as needed. Your race number must be worn on your front and must be visible for the duration of the race. DO NOT exchange or give your race number to another participant.


TRANSFER & DEFERRAL POLICY

We allow transfers and deferrals up until two weeks prior to race day. There is a $10 processing fee for both transfers and deferrals. The transfer processing fee is paid by the "new registrant" and the deferral fee is paid for by the "deferring registrant". If you choose to defer your registration until next year, we will send you a registration code post race that can be used to register for next year race. You may do both by going into your profile on runsignup.com and choosing manage registration. Transfers and Deferrals are not permitted after March 30th.


WEATHER POLICY

Please review the Charm City Run Weather and Event Cancellation policy here prior to registering for this event. If you have any questions about the policy please email us at events@charmcityrun.com prior to registering.
