The Baltimore 10-Miler course is a loop course that starts and finishes at the scenic Druid Hill Park, home of the Maryland Zoo. There is plenty of on-site parking, and those who plan their travels and arrive early will enjoy the sweet sounds of summer in the park as they arrive and prep for the start.
Runners have 3 hours to complete the course, a running pace of 18:00 minutes per mile, and enjoy a wave start which allows runners to thin out and gain some elbow room as they begin their journey of north Baltimore. The course travels on many of the same roads used on the Baltimore Marathon course and some runners use this race as a preview of what’s to come in the fall. The out-and-back pattern of the course runs many of the same roads in each direction. The turn around point is along the spacious and flat path around Lake Montebello, always a fan favorite with its nice scenery, wide and newly paved roadways and the band or DJ that Corrigan Sports plops at the courses furthest point from the startline.
Runners return to Druid Hill knowing a cold towel, delicious watermelon and adult beverages await them after they conquer Mile 9. It’s not like running in Kansas or on the boardwalk at the beach, but more than 20,000 runners have completed the course and lived to brag about it. You will too!
WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT THE COURSE
Loved the challenge of the hills, the loop around the lake, and everything about the course.
Great course, well set up, efficient, lots of water stops, great post-race festival, and a beautiful day. Really enjoyed! Great experience!
There were plenty of water stops, which was nice. All in all this was the best B10 of all the ones I've run.
