Join us for our 16th running of this one-of-a-kind 5K USATF-sanctioned road race through Fairmount and historic Girard College. Then enjoy one of the best post-race breakfasts in the City of Philadelphia.
We will also be hosting our 4th Annual Kids Fun Run - a 1/2 mile run around Eastern State Penitentiary following the 5k.
More importantly, we are rolling out TWO NEW things this year:
- We have moved into the 21st century! The 5K race will be chip-timed this year!
- More medals and more age groups:
- Top three overall male and female finishers
- Top three teams
- Top three male and female finishers in the following age groups: under 20, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and (new) over 70.
