Welcome to Philly Races.

Philly RACES is a series of running events in Philadelphia that is sponsored or supported by the City of Philadelphia’s Managing Director’s Office and the Department of Parks & Recreation.

Philly RACES was established to support the health and wellness of the city through running events that engage more youth and adults in park spaces as well as to build running program offerings across a variety of skill levels to grow these events.

The two anchor events in the running series are the Blue Cross Broad Street Run in May and the Philadelphia Marathon Weekend, which includes the AACR Philadelphia Marathon, the Dietz & Watson Half-Marathon and the Rothman Orthophaedics 8K in November.
