For the seventh consecutive year, the Baltimore Running Festival will feature it’s own Battle of the Bands presented by 98 Rock along the course. We are currently looking for bands to help populate the course and cheer runners on as they run in one of four races: the marathon, half-marathon, four-person relay and 5k.

Each musical act will be given a small stipend two weeks after the event as well as being promoted on our website and social media sites.  Please note that some places have power and others don’t it is your responsibility to determine ahead of time the best course of action.

After the event, runners will vote on which act they liked the best. That act will be chosen to perform at our volunteer party.

Below are the preapproved locations along the course plus time frame. Please rank your first three choices in the survey below as they are assigned on a first come, first served basis.
