Food Trucks and Picnic Areas
Food and beverages will be available for purchase from local food trucks at the event. Participants are also welcome to bring their own food to enjoy in our picnic area.
Children of all ages are welcome to take part in games and face painting at the Kids Booth.
Why We Walk
The Why We Walk tent is one of the most meaningful experiences of the event. It is a place for participants to display messages, pictures, and memories for all to see. Whatever your connection to donation, please stop by this tent and fill out a "Why I Walk" card to share. Messages and photos will not be returned, so please do not use original photographs.
Honor the gift of life at T-Shirt Row! Many participants of the Family Fun Run take part in a tradition of decorating their shirts in memory of their loved one who was a donor or in honor of a transplant recipient or living donor. Feel free to bring an extra decorated shirt to display on race day.
Want to wear your support of donation on your sleeve, literally? Stop at the merchandise booth for t-shirts, pullovers, hats, and more! All proceeds come directly back to The LLF. Prefer to shop online before the race? Visit our online store.
Donor Family Booth
Supporting our donor families is at the heart of our event. Visit our Donor Family Booth to speak with members of our Family Services team and pick up donor family resources and giveaways.
Show our generous sponsors some love! Visit the sponsor booths for information and giveaways.
If you register for the race on or before August 18, we will mail your packet (bib and t-shirt) to the shipping address you provide during checkout. Please note: packets will be mailed separately for each participant the week of August 22. If your household is expecting multiple packets, they may arrive on different days.
If you register after August 18 as a virtual participant, your packet will be mailed after the race.
If you register after August 18 for the in-person 5K or 1K, your packet will be available for in-person packet pickup. Please see below for more details.
T-shirts for registered volunteers will be available for pick-up on the morning of the race at the volunteer tent.
*Please note: Packet pickup is only necessary for 5K and 1K participants (all ages) who register after August 18, 2022.
If you fall into this category, 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.

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).

Camden Yards Sports Complex, Lot C
The 5K race starts and finishes at the Camden Yards Sports Complex in Baltimore, MD. The course is a mostly-flat loop around M&T Bank Stadium and the surrounding neighborhoods.
The race starts on Lee Street between Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium. Runners/walkers proceed from Lee St. to Russell, then Hamburg, and then make a loop around the industrial area near the stadium. After a straightaway on Ostend St. (including your first hill over 395), the course goes around Solo Gibbs Park, 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 over 1K!) also starts and finishes at the Camden Yards Sports Complex on Lee Street. The course proceeds north toward Camden Yards, follows the sidewalk along the Eutaw Street side, then makes a loop around the stadium. Walkers then walk south through Lot B, allowing them 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!
