Here is the link to the Baltimore Running Festival website which includes the marathon and the various other events for this coming weekend. The marathon is 5 days away, and I am at work packing and tapering. Just trying to be prepared. Here are some of the things off of the website that I found to be useful.
The Elevation Chart
Quite a bit of climbing for the first 3 miles and Miles 15-21 or so. But let's focus on the positive---look at those downhills!!
Pace Group Info
(not planning to run with one, but it's nice to know their strategy)
Close to even splits will be the order of the day. We will run no more than 20-30 seconds faster in total over the first 3 miles heading to Druid Hill.
From there it will be some minor give and take within miles with the goal to hit the mile markers from 8 to 26.2 right on the number. We will run the
hills on the second half at even splits (7:15) and enjoy our downhill finish holding pace as group members sail ahead to the finish!
