It had rained for days in the Washington DC Metro Area. But on Saturday, October 12, the Baltimore Running Festival was on! Hopes of a break in the weather loomed in the minds of the runners — including SFMC’s George Ellis and younger brother, Jimmy.
The rain would not stop this fearsome duo from competing in the marathon race. It would just be an additional challenge on the slippery hills in the city of Baltimore. The Ellis brothers are veteran marathon runners. The Baltimore Running Festival would be the second 26.2 miler they ran together.
The rain slacked off and later reappeared with a mist and a drizzle. Jimmy lead the pair during the sprint to the finish. Both brothers crossed the line with impressive times to join the flood of athletes in the Celebration Village party.
