Now that the City is finally granting permits for outdoor events including road races, the SFA is gearing up for the 12th Anniversary of the Sowebo Landmak 5k. It’s “the neighborhood race” coming back after a year off due to COVID and scheduled for October 1st, 2023. Anyone 18 and under runs free, https://sowebolandmark5k.org. It’s a timed road race that we introduced in 2011. Participants include highly competitive and recreational runners as well as those who will feel most comfortable just running a little, jogging, even walking, or pushing a stroller along the 3.1-mile course through the streets of Southwest Baltimore (Sowebo). Participants pass several historic landmarks. It is a signature event uniting neighbors, families, and local resources to create active, healthy communities.
