Charm City Run Events Acquires St. Michaels Running Festival

January 29, 2021

Baltimore, Md. – Baltimore-based Charm City Run Events has acquired the St. Michaels Running Festival, a multi-distance running event held annually in May in St. Michaels, Maryland. The festival, which draws more than 2,000 runners, features a half marathon, 10k, and 5k on USATF-certified courses.

The 2021 St. Michaels Running Festival is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 21, pending current restrictions on gatherings due to COVID-19. Participants in the St. Michaels Running Festival receive a race premium from Brooks, first-class course support, and access to the waterfront post-race party featuring music, beer, and food.

“Charm City Run is privileged and honored to continue the St. Michael’s Running Festival tradition as one of the best destination races in Maryland. Thanks to Lucka and Peter Paris for starting and cultivating a wonderful running experience on the shore,” says Josh Levinson, Co-Founder of Charm City Run.

“We are thrilled to have Charm City Run take the reigns of the St. Michaels Running Festival in 2021 and beyond,” said Peter and Lucka Paris of Eastern Shore Endurance Sports. “A local Maryland company with a focus on giving back to the community is the perfect partner for this event, and we can’t wait to actually participate in the race next year. We would like to express our gratitude to all the volunteers, public safety and first responders, sponsors, the greater community and everyone who was involved with SMRF throughout the years. We deeply appreciate all of the support.”

The Town of St. Michaels, voted one of the Top 10 Small Coastal Towns to Visit in America, is known for its quaint bed and breakfasts, Chesapeake Bay cuisine, and small-town hospitality. Located just 40 minutes from Baltimore and Washington, D.C., the town offers shopping, dining, and entertainment for every taste and budget.
