The annual charity run, the Baltimore 10-miler, takes place Saturday, originating in Druid Hill Park, affecting traffic through several neighborhoods.
The Baltimore City Department of Transportation sent out a lengthy list of traffic modifications for the weekend, starting early Saturday morning.
Roughly 5,000 runners are expected for the event, which starts at 7:30 a.m. One lane of traffic will be coned off for participants along the race route where possible.
