WE ASK RUNNERS TO USE EXIT 7 and EXIT 9 OFF OF I-83 TO SPREAD THE TRAFFIC.

WAVE START: Based on feedback we received from previous years, we will once again implement a wave start for the 2019 Baltimore 10 Miler. While there are no assigned waves we encourage people to start according to their projected finish time based on the honor system, as it will make for a better race day experience for all runners. Waves will start 3 minutes apart giving runners enough time to stretch out and give everyone a little more room to run. REMEMBER, your finish time will be based on Chip Time so you don’t have to worry about not crossing the start line with the first group. Based on the current expected finish times of all registered runners, the waves will break down as follows. (Subject to change).

  • Wave 1- expected finish time of 1 hr to 1:29:00
  • Wave 2- expected finish time of 1:30:00 to 1:40:00
  • Wave 3- expected finish time of 1:40:01 to 2:29:00
  •  Wave 4- expected finish time of 2:30:00 to 3:00:00
