2016 Training Run on September 17, 2016

Falls Road Running, the official Training Partner of the Baltimore Running Festival, will again be hosting a supported course runs for the Baltimore Running Festival! These runs will feature water and Gatorade Endurance , and highlight the actual race course routes.

Key Points:
–arrive early as parking can be challenging in Canton / Patterson Park.
–there will be no port-a-pots on site in the morning for our event.  Plan accordingly.
–obey traffic laws – cars on the road early in the morning are generally people going to work, and tend to be in a rush.
–find a buddy at the start to run with, it’s easier in a group setting to log the long miles.
–enjoy yourself, the Baltimore Running Festival is weeks away – training is always the hardest part.
