‘Kick the COVID-19 Blues’ Is Underway

FINAL Results (Sun May 31) – 364.5 miles total, $1,400 raised

It’s Memorial Day weekend and the forecast is for NO MORE RAIN through Monday! Perfect weather for the first-and-only Kick the COVID-19 Blues Walk/Run/Bike 1000K to the Peninsula Parks: A Social-Distanced ‘Race’ for Everyone.

We’re raising money for pandemic-related causes with every mile biked, walked, or run through Monday by everyone who signed up (see rosters below). Our goal is to hit a total of 621 miles (1000 km).

The ‘Race’ officially began at 8 a.m. Saturday, May 23 and wraps up at 5 p.m. on Monday, May 25.

We’ll also list the #SoBoParks they visited on their treks: Federal Hill (FH), Riverside (R), and Latrobe (L).

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend on the South Baltimore peninsula!
