Runners at the 2015 Baltimore Marathon
|Course records||2:11:56(M) 2:29:11 (F)|
The Baltimore Marathon is the flagship race of several races held in Baltimore, Maryland known collectively as the Baltimore Running Festival. The 12th annual marathon took place on October 13, 2012 and the Festival drew a record 27,000+ participants. Corrigan Sports Enterprises own and operate the Baltimore marathon
The event continues to draw record participants every year, making it one of the fastest growing marathons in the United States. Currently Julius Kipyego Keter holds the men’s record at 2:11:56 and Olena Shurkhno holds the women’s record at 2:29:11.
The marathon begins at the Camden Yards sports complex and travels through many diverse neighborhoods of Baltimore, including the scenic Inner Harbor waterfront area, historic Federal Hill, Fells Point, and Canton, Baltimore. The race then proceeds to other important focal points of the city such as Patterson Park, Clifton Park, Lake Montebello, the Charles Village neighborhood and the western edge of downtown. After winding through 42.195 kilometres (26.219 mi) of Baltimore, the race ends at virtually the same point at which it starts.
The male and female winners of the 2012 race each won $25,000. Other races that take place are a half-marathon, team relay race, 5K race, and kids fun run.
The competition was first held in 2001, but the city has featured marathon races prior to the current incarnation: the Maryland Marathon was held from 1973 to 1980 and this evolved into the Baltimore City Marathon, which was held from 1981 to 1989.
