Sneaks Come Out at Night
Virtual 5k & 3x5k Relay
Presented by Aerotek

 
Friday, August 7th, 2020 - Friday, August 14, 2020
 

Sneaks is now a virtual event!
Originally supposed to take place at Herring Run Park, due to events beyond our control (looking at you COVID-19), we are forced to cancel the in-person event and move to a virtual space.

REGISTRATION:
$30 - 5k General Pricing until June 1st
$35 through August 14th
$35 - 5k Pricing for 'Out of State' runners (covers the cost of mailing your swag!)

Race the individual 5K or join forces with two friends for a 3-person relay.

Proceeds from this event benefit the Baltimore chapter of Back on My Feet, a national organization working to combat homelessness through running, community support and essential employment and housing resources. In fact, participants will be running alongside (virtually!) BoMF members, alumni and volunteers. The top individual and team fundraisers (along with other team and individual awards!) will be recognized at the race for their efforts to transform lives in Baltimore.


  
 What about t-shirts?!
