The Rothman Institute 8K (4.97 miles) is a fantastic way to take part in the race weekend excitement. Start off on the expansive Benjamin Franklin Parkway, just below the steps of the Art Museum and looking out upon City Hall, before taking a turn on the scenic banks of the Schuylkill River and Kelly Drive. 

It's usually perfect running weather too, with fall well underway and temperatures averaging around 54°F/12°C. Don your autumn apparel and join us for this enjoyable race where we redefine the standard 8K.
