“The MDTA Police is honored to be a part of such a terrific event that will benefit the many athletes associated with Special Olympics Maryland,” said MDTA Police Chief Colonel Jerry Jones.  “This exciting event taking place underneath the Baltimore Harbor will spotlight one of the MDTA’s most unique facilities and at the same time raise funds and awareness for SOMD athletes.”

 

“I am grateful to the MDTA and our title sponsor Geico for their incredible efforts and support in hosting the event,” said SOMD President and CEO Jim Schmutz. “We’re expecting more than 400 enthusiastic runners who are eager to fundraise all in support our 7,785 SOMD athletes who compete year-round in 27 sports free of charge. Together through sport, we are creating a world where opportunity is not limited by disability.”

Participants are invited to a post-race celebration sponsored by SOMD. The entry fee is $35 through Sept. 15 and $40 the day of the event.
