ALL RUNNERS MUST ATTEND THE EXPO TO PICK UP THEIR RACE PACKETS. THERE WILL BE NO RACE DAY PACKET PICK UP.

The Health and Fitness Expo will be back at the Baltimore Convention Center for the 18th Annual Baltimore Running Festival. The expo will be held on October 18-19, 2018 (Thursday & Friday). The Health & Fitness Expo is open to the public and FREE of charge. You don’t have to be participating in the event to browse all the great wares that will be on display. You will find great prices on shoes, apparel, active gear and health care products – items you can use even if you’re not a runner. THE NEW EXPO HOURS FOR 2018 ARE AS FOLLOWS:

  • Thu., October 18th 3pm-8pm
  • Fri., October 19th 12pm-8pm

Once again this year, the Health & Fitness Expo will be held in the Baltimore Convention Center, Hall A. The entrance is near the corner of Pratt & Charles and is the same entrance that we utilized last year at the Convention Center. This year we have a larger foot print that has allowed us to expand the layout add a few more vendors for you to visit during packet pick up.

The Maryland Stadium Authority will offer Lots F and G for FREE PARKING during the expo. These lots are within a walking distance from the convention center– about .75 mile. There is also the option to take the Light Rail from the Hamburg St. station located Lot G two stops to the Convention Center stop. Several paid lots are located near the Convention Center if you choose to pay to park.

We will be providing a free courtesy shuttle to the expo from lots F and G. It is about a 15-minute bus ride each way. The shuttle stop will be located on the curbside island between lots G & H (see the adjacent map and look for the shuttle bus sign) during the following times:

SHUTTLE TIMES

2:30pm-8:30pm on Thursday

11:30am-8:30pm on Friday

PLEASE NOTE: We encourage runners who live or work Downtown to attend the expo on Thursday. This is typically the least crowded time and will allow you to better enjoy your expo experience. It will also assist us in accommodating our out-of-town guests who do not have the option of attending early. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
