The Health and Fitness Expo will be back at the Baltimore Convention Center for the 20th Anniversary of the Baltimore Running Festival. The expo will be held on October 8, 2021 ( 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 EXPO HOURS FOR 2021 ARE AS FOLLOWS:

  • Fri., October 8th 11am-8pm

MAILED PACKET OPTION

In order to reduce touch points due to COVID-19, this year we are offering an option for you to pay to have your gear mailed to you. If you already registered, and now want to add this option on for $25, Visit your Run Sign Up Profile HERE and select “Manage Add ons.” Packets will be mailed prior to race day. When we mail out your packet, we will provide you with tracking information.  Those who have their packet mailed ARE NOT permitted to pick up their packet during the expo.

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 in the past at the Convention Center.

The Maryland Stadium Authority will offer Lot H for FREE PARKING during the expo. This lot is 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 lot H. 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:
