This week we'll run around Lake Montebello and on Herring Run Trail in northeast Baltimore. The half marathoners will maintain the same distance as last week, 5 miles, while the marathoners will cut back to 6. Sign up for carpooling if you need a ride or can provide one.


We'll meet at 8 am in the parking lot behind the Montebello elementary school. If you're heading east on 33rd Street, stay in the middle lane and take the slight left onto Lake Drive. Turn right at the lake (Curran Drive) and the parking lot will be on your right.


  • From the parking lot, turn right on Curran Drive and run counter-clockwise around the lake.
  • Turn right after half a mile and follow the road away from the lake.
  • Turn right at Harford Road and run to the intersection with Chesterfield Avenue.
  • Cross Harford Road and take the paved path (Herring Run Trail).
  • Turn right at the T intersection and continue on the pavement.
  • Stay on this trail and turn around at 2.3 miles total distance.
  • When you get back to the lake, turn right and continue counter-clockwise back to the parking lot.
  • Same as above, but turn around at 2.8 miles.
