After three years of virtual events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Maryland Half Marathon & 5K returns to Maple Lawn in Howard County on Saturday, June 10, 2023.
The 15th annual race unites runners, walkers and supporters looking to improve the lives and outcomes of cancer patients. Net proceeds support cancer research and innovative care at the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center (UMGCCC) at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), one of a select group of cancer centers in the country to earn comprehensive designation from the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
Participants can select from two distance options: the 13.1-mile half marathon and the 5K race. Registration is $75 for the half marathon and $40 for the 5K and includes an official race t-shirt, race medal, and access to a runner’s dashboard. Nonrunners are also encouraged to participate by raising funds or donating directly to an individual runner or team. All donations are tax-deductible.
Launched in 2009, the Maryland Half Marathon & 5K has raised more than $6 million for research at the cancer center. These funds have made it possible to develop more effective treatments, identify new ways to detect and diagnose cancer and advance the understanding of how cancer grows and spreads.
