We all have non-running friends who think that runners are a little off.  They can’t understand why you do it and might event even call you names behind your back.  Runners, on the other hand, KNOW they are a little crazy and are proud to boast about it!

The Baltimore Running Festival has come up with a way for our wildest runners to get their kicks and poke a little fun at the fact that most people think they are nuts!

Register early for year two of the BaltiMORON-a-thon!

What do I have to do?!?

Complete the ShopRite 5k and the CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield Half-Marathon on the same day. (Crazy, right?)

When will I do this?

The 5K will start at 7:30AM and the half marathon at 9:45AM. (Note: the start lines are different for each race)

What do I get for being a BaltiMORON?

  • A special bib
  • An extra medal
  • A savings of up to $5 versus registering for the races separately
  • Two race shirts (one for each race distance)
  • A reason to say  “I am truly a Baltimoron!

How do I register?

From the online registration page of the website, you will see a special category called the BaltiMORON-a-thon! Select this category to enroll in both the 5K and half-marathon at once and receive your special BaltiMORON-a-thon discount.

But what if I am already registered for the 5k or half marathon?

Register for the other race and COMPLETE THIS FORM to let us know you are now eligible.  We will make the adjustment in our system manually.  The deadline to merge your race entries is August 1PLEASE NOTE:  If you register for the two distances separately, you are not eligible for your discounted rate.

What else do I need to know before becoming a BaltiMORON?

Medals will be distributed following the completion of the half-marathon. Your special bib will be distributed at the expo and will help our volunteers and everyone else identify you as a BaltiMORON-a-thon participant (and let them know to run the other way…very quickly!).

What if I am Really Fast?

A prize will be awarded for the 1st place overall Male & Female Baltimoron-a-thon registrant – based on your combined finishing chip time in the Half & 5k
