There's a 23-acre estate in the City, operating Baltimore's largest urban farm? It's true! The Samaritan Women is a very different kind of organization, so why do a typical 5K?

We've charted a course that will not only give you a good workout, but also some surprising scenery. Along the course you'll enjoy Baltimore City's largest farm, greenhouses, a berry vineyard, chickens, bees, a view of the National Cemetery, and over 17 acres of woodland.

…a Farm in the City? Who woulda thought?

RUN/WALK ENTRY FEES:

$25 registration before/on May 1st
