For 4 years, this has been the race of choice for your pre-Halloween fun! The famous Cats & Bats 5K is once again in ABERDEEN! Spend your #HalloweeninAberdeen

SATURDAY, October 31st – 8:00 am start time.  USATF Certified Course

Advance packet pickup will be held at:   Festival Park in Aberdeen on Thursday, 10/29/20 from 3-7 pm.  Look for us under the pavilion.
Please try to attend the Advance Packet pickup as this will help us to avoid crowds on race day.

Due to CoVid-19 restrictions, there will be no packet pickup at Charm City Run this year.  

We will also be offering a mailing option this year ($5.00), please see registration.

The second option is to pick up your packet on the morning of the race. Packet pick-up will begin at 6:30 AM and will run until 8:00 AM. Participants are STRONGLY URGED to utilize the off-site packet pickup opportunity as race day pickup can be very busy and we must start the race on-time in order to comply with police and permit restrictions.


CUSTOM EVENT SHIRT – Please register by 10/16 to guarantee your shirt size choice. Shirt size choice will shut off on that day, but registration will remain open.  We will do our best to have shirts for all but cannot guarantee sizes or availability for those who register after 10/16

Come on out to beautiful Festival Park in Aberdeen, MD and participate in the ONLY 5k to feature a Custom Commemorative Finisher’s Medal for all participants.
This is THE area’s spookiest fall running event, so don’t miss out!  Registration is open but we expect a sellout crowd.
In addition to a beautiful flat-and-fast course, you also get great swag, food, drink, shirts, awards, and don’t forget. . . an AWESOME Finisher’s Medal for all participants!

Our run will benefit The National PTSD Foundation, a 501©3 that works to support our local first responders who suffer from this affliction.

Medals will be awarded to our overall Male and Female Winners, as well as age group awards, first place only 9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+). Winners to be announced post-race. Winners will be notified via email.
