The Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) encourages all attendees, particularly half-marathoners, to be mindful of parking and road closures & make public transportation your choice for getting to the festival on expo days as well as race day.
On race day, roadways around town, near the stadium, and near the Inner Harbor will be closed prior to 7:30 am for the marathon start. This will be further complicated by the half-marathon start at 9:45am. Light Rail will deliver riders to the festival, and provides free parking where parking is available. The Light Rail system will run every 30 min. beginning at 6 am coming South from Hunt Valley (50 min. ride) to the stadium and at 5 am coming North from Cromwell (26 min. ride) to the stadium.
Runners should exit from the Convention Center or Hamburg St. stops for easy access to the start/finish and the expo. (The Camden Yards stop will be close due to construction on race weekend in 2018.)
Traveling Light Rail on the expo days is a great way to make a trail run as you prepare for race day travel. Eliminate some race day stress as you figure out where to park and estimate the travel time from your door to the Convention Center stop. You may also save a few dollars if you had planned to pay to park for the expo.
