How to Register

Since 2009, the Maryland Half Marathon & 5K has welcomed thousands of runners and walkers across its finish line who are all running to fight cancerRegister now to help us reach this year's goal of $500,000 to support the University of Maryland Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center (UMGCCC).

You'll enjoy the fun of being part of a community whose members train together and support one another. Each participant will receive a race T-shirt and a medal. Not to mention, we put the FUN in fundraising. With our easy-to-use tools, you’ll hit your personal goal in no time.
