Here is my recap and review of the Baltimore Marathon.
Website: Baltimore Marathon
Time of Year: October, which is a very lovely time of year in the mid-Atlantic. I recall having great weather.
Logistics: Getting to Baltimore is very easy via air (flying into BWI) or Amtrak if you do not live within driving distance. Packet pickup was in the city–very easy. I stayed with a friend in the city the night before the race, but there are tons of hotel options. The race starts and finishes as Camden Yards–again, super easy. Walk to the start! (Yesssss.) Also, Camden Yards is pretty and fun.
Swag: I cannot emphasize this enough. REQUEST A MEN’S SHIRT. The women’s cut did NOT work on me. Maybe it has been improved? Better to just stick with the guys. But otherwise, YAYLONGSLEEVEDTECHTEEMYFAVORITE.
