We're not just a 5K race - plan to stay after the race to enjoy all the activities the Family Fun Run has to offer!
Stay for an after-race-party featuring music, food trucks and a picnic area, sponsor booths, Why We Walk, T-Shirt Row, kids activities, and more. We are excited for the opportunity to get to know our participants and really have time to talk and meet with each other after the race. We hope you'll join us!
We strongly encourage you to pick up your race packet (bib and t-shirt) in advance so you don't have to wait in line on race day. If you are a Virtual Participant, your t-shirt will be mailed to you. If you are a volunteer, you may pick up your t-shirt on race day.
No need to print anything out - just bring a photo ID to packet pickup.
Due to increased participation in the Donate Life Family Fun Run, Team Captains are NO LONGER ALLOWED to pick up their entire team's packets.
You ARE allowed to pick up packets for immediate family members (in the same household) - OR - one other participant's packet with advance written permission (a signed or emailed note from the participant acknowledging who will be picking up their packet).

Unable to Pick Up Your Packet Before Race Day?*
For a small fee, we offer the option to have your race packet (bib and t-shirt) mailed to you prior to the race.
This option is available for 5K and 1K participants of all ages for a fee of either $8 (individual packet mailed to one address) or $22 (3-6 packets mailed together one address).
During your race registration, select the "Mail My Packet!" option. Please note, if you are registering multiple participants, you need to include the add-on for EACH participant.
If you have already registered for the Fun Run and would like to have your packet mailed, you may add the service here.
The race bib and t-shirt will be mailed via USPS to the address provided during registration.
This add-on option expires on Sunday, Sept. 6, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. Anyone who registers after that date will need to utilize one of our three packet pickup locations (listed above).
Packets will be mailed by Sept. 16, 2020.
*Please note that Virtual Participants do not need to use this add-on to have their t-shirt mailed. Mailing is included in the cost of their registration.
The 5K race starts and finishes in the Camden Yards Sports Complex on Raven's Walk in Baltimore, MD. The course is a mostly-flat loop around M&T Bank Stadium and the surrounding neighborhoods.
The race starts on Ravens' Walk and goes North towards Camden Yards and Lee St. Runners/walkers then proceed from Lee St. to Russell and then Hamburg, then make a loop around the industrial area near the stadium. After a straight away on Ostend St. (including your first hill over 395), the course goes around Solo Gibbs Park and back to Hamburg St. (for your second and last hill!) and finally around M&T Bank Stadium before finishing on Ravens' Walk.
The 1K walk (actually a little under 1K!) also starts and finishes in the Camden Yards Sports Complex on Ravens' Walk. The course follows the start of the 5K race, but then turns left onto Hamburg instead of right, allowing walkers to end up back on Ravens' Walk.
Free race day parking is available in Lots B and C at Camden Yards Sports Complex.
The approximate address for GPS directions is:
405 W Lee St, Baltimore, MD 21201.
Parking attendants will direct you to the nearest available spot.
We highly recommend that participants park before 8:30 a.m. as police will be closing off nearby roads for the race. Arrive early to grab a coffee from a food truck and hear from our inspirational speakers!
