The race is an "out and back" course with runners making their way from the southern side of the Philadelphia Museum of Art to Falls Bridge and back, all along the scenic, tree-lined, Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. In addition to the 12K, race day events include the Fred 5K, the Y Kids Family Fit Zone and a 3K Family Run/Walk. Join your favorite PBS Kids costumed characters at the Y Kids Family Fit Zone. Scheduled activities include educational games and more! Whether you are participating in the 12K, the 5K or the 3K, the Y Kids Family Fit Zone should not be missed! The relaxing 3K will take place on the same course as the 12K. Run, walk, or saunter while you enjoy the fabulous fall foliage along the Schuylkill River - strollers welcome in the 3K!
