Please join us for the Mid-Atlantic’s largest all women’s 5k, the Baltimore Women’s Classic. June 23, at 8 AM. Women from the surrounding areas and of all participant levels will share in the accomplishment of completing a 5k through Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Registration is $40 through June 16th, $45 thereafter. Get a finisher’s medal, a cool towel (temperature!), technical T-shirt and a flower. Walkers, jogging strollers, kids (girls) welcome. This is a women-only race (the country’s second oldest!). Men may not participate in the race, but we’d love to have them as volunteers. Any group of 5 or more can register as a team. Post-race Festival Village is a blast, with various vendors, food (including watermelon) music, and for those so inclined — a mimosa or hard seltzer. Come and join this fantastic Baltimore summer tradition!

We are running to raise awareness about our mission: Run Hope Work helps improve the lives of young adults in DC who are battling homelessness, returning from the justice system, struggling with single parenthood, and/or facing unemployment but are motivated to work. Funds raised through this 5K and other efforts allow Run Hope Work to get more DC youth off the streets and into jobs in the construction trades. We’re helping empower young adults through running, meditation and workforce development to end the cycle of poverty and violence. Please join us! Let’s all Run for a Better Life.

Our June 23rd race will be a fast, flat, out and back 5K on the C&O Canal Tow Path in DC. The race begins at 8:00 a.m. at Fletcher’s Cove and heads upstream.
