Baltimoreans can expect road closures and parking restrictions Saturday as thousands of runners will fill the city’s streets for the 21st Baltimore Running Festival. About 11,000 participants are expected to participate across the events, which include a marathon, a half-marathon, a 10K and a 5K. They will come from all 50 states and 15 countries. About 500 volunteers also will come out to help, as the event returns to normal after two years of pandemic-related restrictions, according to a news release from Corrigan Sports Enterprises, which organizes the event. No live races were held in 2020. They returned in 2021, but with some restrictions, according to Lee Corrigan, event director and Corrigan president. A few hundred people are expected to participate in the event virtually, Corrigan said.
