Sold out Baltimore Grand Prix 5k organizers hope to restore race

The Baltimore Grand Prix 5k race organizers filled every one of the 2,000 slots last year, but there won't be a running race this year, according to organizers at Corrigan Sports.

The Labor Day race appeared victim to the new sponsor's time constraints, but Corrigan spokesman Dave Gell said they hope to bring it back next year.

The race, held on the Grand Prix course downtown, won participants more than the usual T-shirt. They also got adminission to that day's racing.

But there's always next year. And in the meantime, the 5k organizers will be putting on another set of races in the city -- the Baltimore Running Festival. The 12th running of the festival -- 27,000 runners for the marathon, half marathon, team relay, 5k and kids fun run -- will be held Oct. 13.
