The streets of Baltimore offer a challenge for runners of all types. These diverse neighborhoods create interesting courses of all skill levels.

A Word About this Section
The Baltimore Marathon Practice Runs #2 start from Patterson Park.

Many downtown runs use Light and Pratt as a starting point, so adjust your route from there based on your actual starting point.  Monday evenings the Federal Hill Runners leave from Cross Street at 6:30 pm, their routes are under Fed Hill.

Most mid-town runs start from Homewood Field right across from the Inn at the Colannade.  This is about half a mile from Charles Village, so adjust accordingly.

Baltimore Marathon


This is the fundamental course for the Baltimore Marathon.  Every year that are variations due to road construction and other deviations.  The half marathon course runs from the Inner Harbor north on Calvert, right on Fayette, and connects with the full marathon course at Patterson Park.
