Event Date: January 29, 2005
Event Start: 9:00am
Event End: Around 11:00
Location: Druid Hill Park, Baltimore, Maryland
Event Operations: Event Communications
Our team assisted The Baltimore Road Runners club with event communications at key locations throughout the course. Our main job was to monitor the racers and the track conditions as there was ice in several locations and the course was open to a low volume of traffic.
Everything went well, except for one incident in which a motorist traveling at a high rate of speed came through the start/finish line and was headed toward the front of the runners. Upon seeing this, net control (being run by unit 687) contacted the closest unit (650) to where the vehicle was head and asked her to stop the vehicle and ask the motorist to slow down.
