Interested in a weekend of running and health-related activities? Then head over to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway this weekend for the return of the annual Philadelphia Marathon!
More than just a single marathon, the event will host a series of runs, culminating in the main event on Sunday: a full, 24K marathon through the streets of our amazing city. For those not prepared to do a full marathon, don’t worry: there will also be a half-marathon (12K), an 8K run and a Fun Run for the kids. And of course you can always just watch the festivities instead of joining the runs. There’s also a Health and Fitness Expo at the Convention Center this weekend.
The marathon passes through some of Philly’s historic areas and is great way to explore our city! For a complete schedule of events, to register, or for more information on the marathon, visit www.philadelphiamarathon.com.
