Philadelphia has been redefining what a great Marathon can be since 1994. Each year since then, the city hosts one of the country’s premiere Marathons along with a weekend-long series of events to celebrate both the run and the runners every November. This year, we celebrate the Philadelphia Marathon's 20th Anniversary, from 11/15-11/17, and expect to welcome over 25,000 runners.
We are bringing the 8K Group Challenge back this year! We invite run clubs, fitness centers, local businesses, colleges/universities, corporations, and non‐profit organizations to sign up a group (5 or more) to run in the Rothman 8K.
Each participant receives a discount on registration, when registering with a group of 5 or more ($35.00 until 10/15 - $10 discount - and $40.00 from 10/16 to 11/1 - $5 discount). Participating groups will have the chance to win awards and prizes for Fastest Group, Largest Group, and more! To sign a group up, please email email@example.com .
The 8K takes place on Saturday, November 16. Start time is at 7:30am. All participants receive an 8K shirt, refreshments, and a finisher certificate. More details at: http://www.philadelphiamarathon.com/races/rothman-institute-8k.
We hope you will join us!
