    About the event
    From the organiser

    Runners will be treated in typical Corrigan Sports fashion. This eleventh running event will feature the same scenic, challenging, yet fun course that starts and finishes at Druid Hill Lake Park near the Maryland Zoo. The course will travel along the North side of town to Lake Montebello and return to Druid Hill for the post race festivities that are SECOND TO NONE for this size race.

      For this review, I'm separating my personal experience from the actual race! (Things started out great but once three guys who were doused in cologne stood beside me at the starting line ... oh my gosh. Nausea city.)But the Baltimore 10-Miler is a lovely race with a semi-challenge course, great scenery and swag plus a killer after party. Rather than an expo, bibs can be picked up at various locations the week prior to the race. (One different location per day.) You can sign up for race day packet pick-up but this option does sell out.On race day, there was plenty of parking but a long walk to the starting area. No biggie, I arrived super early and had plenty of time. As with most races, there were long lines for the port-o-potties, but if you keep walking to the ones on the end, the line is minimal. The course started near Druid Hill Park, goes through some neighborhoods and the Baltimore Zoo, and then loops around Lake Montebello before backtracking to the start. There's not as much crowd support as with the Baltimore Running Festival, but that's okay, once you finish it's a total party with a kicking band, lots of post-race food, and two free beers. The line for race shirts and Baltimore 10-Miler towel, (loved, btw,) was lengthy for a while there, so I'd recommend getting your beers, relaxing, and waiting until the line is minimal. One criticism for the 2018 race was how there were a couple aid stations with no volunteers, leaving runners to fend for themselves and pour their own water. This is a rare oversight, however, since stations in the 2016 were well attended. Plus their was Santa and lots of elves at another water stop that made up for it!All in all, while my personal experience at this race was rough due to nasuea, I love this race. I'm also a big fan of the King Crab Challenge that consists of the Frederick Half Marathon, Baltimore 10-Miler, and Baltimore Running Festival. I also appreciated how race photos were free thanks to Carefirst!

      The race was very well put together. There was a fear of cancellation because of possible thunderstorms all the way up through Race morning (ended up with no rain at all). The race was very communicative and helpful in describing the plans of what would happen if it was thunder storming and the race was cancelled. Bib pickup was really easy although there was no expo. At the race, parking was very easy although there was a fair amount of traffic but it moved quickly. The race then gave you the choice to walk to the start or hop on a shuttle. The walk to the start was at least a half mile and I am pretty sure nearly every runner chose to walk to the start. They started the race in 3 waves with each starting a few mins after the one ahead of it. The course was challenging. The first half seemed to be mostly downhill although you don’t notice it much. The second half seemed to be mostly uphill which made it very difficult. They had a fair amount of water stops spread over the course with a total of 5 or 6. At the finish line they had lots of snacks, Gatorade, water, and cold towels( which were amazing). They handed you the finishers medal (which is ok- it has a picture of a polar bear on it to represent the MD Zoo which I understand but why go with a polar bear which you think of as a wintery animal but the race is in June.) then had you go pick up the amazing premiums which were a beach towel and a nice shirt.

      I don't repeat many races, but this is the one I come back to every year. It's just such a great overall experience and a great summer race. The course is mainly on paved roads in a nice large park, through some neighborhoods to circle a huge lake, and then back to the start. It starts near the Baltimore Zoo, and the nice medal features a different zoo animal every year. Post-race features watermelon along with standard race fare, and parking and amenities are close by in the park. The swag/gear each year is fantastic. Instead of a simple race shirt it might be a rain jacket or a thick 1/2 zip pullover, stuff that has become staples in my running and everyday attire. This race is also part of the King Crab Challenge series of races that are fun and earn amazing swag for locals who are into that kinda thing.It's actually hard to pick out any one aspect of the race that makes it so great, it's just an overall great experience that keeps me coming back every year.
