Sign up today for the 2016 Port to Fort 6k Race – this will be a special year for the race, as it’s our 20th Anniversary!

Rally the troops, enlist your family, challenge your friends, or run individually through a scenic Fort McHenry 6k course, named one of CBS Baltimore’s Top Running Events!

Twenty years ago, Believe In Tomorrow Children’s Foundation and Home Depot partnered to create the Port to Fort 6k Race. What started as a grassroots effort to raise funds and awareness for Believe In Tomorrow has grown into an event that draws thousands of participants, including individuals, families, community groups, and members of the U.S. Armed Services, all running in support of a great cause!
