The Occupy Baltimore protest in the Inner Harbor is in its second week and showing no sign of slowing. But this Saturday, the Baltimore offshoot of the international anti-corporate movement will be sharing McKeldin Plaza with the Baltimore Marathon, which has a permit to use the protest site.

According to minutes from the group’s October 9 general assembly (published online), Occupy Baltimore is in communication with the organizers of the marathon to work out a way to accommodate both happenings.

Assuming the double-occupancy is resolved, marathon runners can expect to receive a quick education in the corrupting influence of Corporate America in addition to  a bottle of water at around mile nine.
