Baltimore Running Festival
October 16, 2010 by staff
Baltimore Running Festival, The 10th edition of the Baltimore Marathon began this morning following the 2009 route. The sky was clear and cool temperatures that nearly 5,000 runners began to cross the starting line of Russell and Camden Streets at 08:01 AM for the longest.
More than 22,000 runners will participate in this year’s Baltimore Running Festival, which includes six different races of varying distances and difficulties, culminating in the marathon of 26.2 miles.
The road winds through the city and includes sections scenery along the way as the waterfront of Inner Harbor, Fells Point and Federal Hill with a loop around Lake Montebello.
Even if, statistically, the chances are good that each rider will get home safely, Lee Corrigan of Corrigan Sports, the event organizer, said it would be difficult for him to relax until every rider is alive and accounted for at the end of the day.
Unfortunately, deaths occur occasionally, but statistically it is no more risky than other sporting events. A study by the London Marathon, found a mortality rate of one in 67,414 runners over 20 years. This amounts to one death per 2 million miles of running. Related heart disease, often undiagnosed, were the most frequent cause of death.
