Public Transportation

LIGHT RAIL UPDATE: MTA HAS ADDED TWO LIGHT RAIL TRAINS TO ACCOMMODATE MARATHON RUNNERS ON RACE DAY The first train will leave Hunt Valley at 4:45 am making all stops to Camden Yards. That train should arrive at Camden approximately 5:38 am. The next train will leave Hunt Valley at 5:15 am also making all stops to Camden Yards. This train should arrive at Camden Yards approximately 6:08 am. The next Hunt Valley train is a regularly scheduled train leaving at 6:00 am with a scheduled arrival time of 6:53 am. (THIS IS NEW INFORMATION AND IS NOT CONTAINED IN OUR HANDBOOK). 

(This is the final adjustment to the special race day Light Rail Schedule. Special thanks to our partners at the MTA for stepping up and helping us out.)

The Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) encourages all attendees, particularly half-marathoners, to be mindful of parking and road closures & make public transportation your choice for getting to the festival on expo days as well as race day.

On race day, roadways around town and near the stadium will be closed prior to 7 am for the marathon & relay start. This will be further complicated by the half-marathon start at 8:45am. Light Rail will deliver riders to the festival, and provides free parking where parking is available. The Light Rail system will run every 30 min. beginning at 6am am coming South from Hunt Valley (50 min. ride) to the stadium and at 5 am coming North from Cromwell (26 min. ride) to the stadium.

Runners should exit from the Camden Yards stop for easy access to the start/finish and the expo.

That train should arrive at Camden approximately 5:38 am. The next train will leave Hunt Valley at 5:15 am also making all stops to Camden Yards.

Traveling Light Rail on the expo days is a great way to make a trail run as you prepare for race day travel. Eliminate some race day stress as you figure out where to park and estimate the travel time from your door to the Camden Yards stop. You may also save a few dollars if you had planned to pay to park for the expo.
