The flat 5K course will show off the scenic views of Charm City’s most famous landmark before finishing down the amazing home stretch as the other race distances – along Pratt Street near McKeldin Square. All 5K runners receive a crab themed finisher’s medal, which features Camden Yards in 2019, along with an Under Armour race shirt.
