Sign up to get your Baltimore Running Festival photos for FREE!
That’s right, thanks to CareFirst BlueCross Blue Shield, this year everyone will get access to Free Race Photos! Participants will have the ability to share all their race photos on Facebook and/or download them at no charge after the race. You can also purchase high resolution unbranded individual prints, race album packages or race branded products. Hi-res photos will be available by about 7 days following the race.
We encourage you to opt in early (beginning Oct. 17) and have your Free Race Photos post directly to your Facebook account once they go live. Some photos are posted during the race so your friends and families can keep tabs on your race day experience while you are still running! Others are posted soon after the race. Beginning Oct. 17, you will be able to sign up to take advantage of this great opportunity to share your race experience with your friends and family. Those who opt in to post to Facebook will be entered into drawing to win one of 10 free entries into the 2018 Baltimore Running Festival.
Be sure to wear your bib on the front to ensure the photographers capture your bib number in the photos and keep your race bib uncovered and in clear view. We recommend stopping your watch a few seconds after crossing the finish line so it may be possible to identify your photograph. Be sure to stop by the finisher’s photo station just after you cross the finish line to capture the moment!
You have two options (you can use both) to access your photos!
Option 1: Pic2Go (instant gratification)
- Enter your bib number (released on Oct. 17)
- Select continue and choose how you’d like to share your photos (Public, Friends, Only Me). If you select Only Me, you can delete any photos you don’t want to share, then click on the album in Facebook and “Change to Shared Album”
- Your photos will immediately post to an album on your Facebook timeline. Additional photos may post to your album throughout the week as they are manually tagged. You can remove any photos you don’t want to keep.
Option 2: Backprint
This option does NOT require a Facebook account. Here you can view and download your photos, and can also purchase high resolution individual prints, race album packages or race branded products.
- DOWNLOADABLE PHOTOS ON BACKPRINT WILL BE AVAILABLE ABOUT 7 DAYS FOLLOWING THE COMPLETION OF THE RACE.
