8th Annual Sowebo Landmark 5K Run (Past event)

Union Square Park, Southwest Baltimore

Here’s another way you can “Love the City You’re With” whether you’re a resident or a visitor.  Enough about what is not going right with Baltimore, or any given city; get out and meet your neighbors.  Come out for the 8th Annual Sowebo (Southwest Baltimore) Landmark 5k on a crisp fall October morning. 

 

This one is easy enough for the “un-runners“ and competitive enough for the ones who might want to add this run to their Sunday morning routine and try to medal. 

 

Mixolo is excited to return to Sowebo, this time on foot.  Race director Ivan Leshinsky was a gracious co-host and tour guide of our epic “Love the City You’re With” bike tour through Southwest Baltimore this past July.  Co-Founder of the Southwest Sports and Fitness Alliance, he is a staunch advocate for youth engagement and development in his beloved Southwest Baltimore.  

 

The race has become a defining event for Southwest Baltimore. Run, jog, walk or do a little of each as you move along the 3.1-mile course showcasing the rich cultural diversity,

architectural beauty, historic landmarks and parks in the area before finishing in the beautiful historic Union Square Park for a post-race celebration. There will be medals and winners in multiple male and female age categories, T-shirts for all participants, food, prizes, a free pass to the B & O Railroad Museum, a Mixolo favorite, and more.

 

Proceeds from the event support neighborhood youth development activities, sports and

recreation programs, and the Southwest Baltimore Charter School’s (SBCS) expeditionary learning program that inspires the thoughtful, courageous, compassionate citizen in every child.

SBCS’s Expeditionary Learning includes fitness and adventure experiences in and around Baltimore, on Maryland’s beautiful Eastern Shore, and participation in and week-long Outward Bound program.  What’s not to love about this kind of enrichment for our future, and often most vulnerable, citizens? 

 

Join Mixolo solos today.  If you'd like to join as a Mixolo team member, select our team (Mixolo) when you register (the team password:  Mixolo).  Let’s show up in force in support of healthy and connected communities.  There’s something special about Sowebo.  Residents, local merchants, community groups, even managers of notable historical attractions, are working together to ensure that all are included in the promise of making Baltimore a better place to live.  And they are ready to welcome you now.
