WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Around our House, we think of Shuffle Day as the Happiest Morning in Maryland. It brings together everyone we hold dear – our RMH families, friends of the House, and dedicated community members – unified in mission to honor the strength of our amazing kids. The buzz in the air on race day is unbeatable, and after two years of shuffling virtually, we cannot wait to welcome ALL your smiling faces back. That’s why we are excited to announce that the Red Shoe Shuffle will be held IN-PERSON this year – HOORAY! Mark your calendars and plan to lace-up with us on Sunday, April 3, 2022, as we run, walk, or shuffle through our 5K course in Downtown Baltimore.

This year not only brings us back together, but it also commemorates the first Shuffle launch from our new House on 1 Aisquith Street, Baltimore, MD 21202. In addition to providing an awesome Under Armour race day athletic shirt and Red Shoe Shuffle swag, we will give all Shufflers a pair of festive, striped and heart-printed socks, showing both our red & white pride and the love that binds us. On April 3, let’s show our happy and stride as one big family to celebrate the return of the Shuffle and the bright spirit of RMH.

  • Visit our registration site for more race-day information and how to join us on April 3, 2022. Although we hope to see you in-person at the Shuffle, we understand that attending events is a personal choice. This year, we are offering both types of registration as an in-person Shuffler or an at-home Virtual Shuffler. RMHC Maryland is committed to abiding by all current CDC COVID protocols and Baltimore City outdoor gathering rules to ensure the safety of our Shufflers and their families.
  • Registration includes a special Red Shoe Shuffle Under Armour athletic shirt, commemorative 2022 medal, and a runner’s race-day swag bag (Red Shoe Shuffle youth shirt and race-day swag are also included in Child registrations).
    Note, Under Armour race shirts are not guaranteed for adult registrations after March 18th or for race-day registrations, so don’t delay!
  • Race Day registration will open at 7:30am on race morning.
