Thank you for running on behalf of the Claire Marie Foundation in the 16th Baltimore Running Festival on October 21, 2017! 

The Claire Marie Foundation was established in 2014 following the death of Claire Marie Wagonhurst, a sparkling 17 year old who lost a long battle with adolescent melanoma as a result of changes her body went through during puberty.

The Baltimore Running Festival is considered one of the best races on the East Coast and we are so proud to be a part of this great Maryland tradition. Funds raised will support our mission to raise awareness, clarity and hope in the fight against adolescent and young adult melanoma through prevention, education, and awareness programs. 


Please email us at We will send you a one-time use code that you can use to register free of charge for the Baltimore Running Festival. We'll also send you instructions and helpful tips on how to set up your own fundraising campaign!
