Love Run Date Change Policy

Love Run Date Change Policy

Dear Runners,

First, we want to thank you for all of your support through this very difficult, ever changing time. We assure you that any decision we have made and will make moving forward is in the best interest of our runners, endurance family and community.

We realize that the postponement of our race (and so many others) has affected each of you very deeply and we want to do everything in our power to offer you a positive resolution.

The impending cancellation brought our team together to act swiftly and efficiently to do everything in our power to secure a new date. We were beyond ecstatic that the Philadelphia Parks and Recreation and the City of Philadelphia were able to grant us a new permit.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Philly because we are going to have an epic Love Run on 10.10.20. We will come out of this stronger and more united than ever and we are going to make the Love Run race weekend a centerpiece to help local businesses recover from this entire episode. We hope all of you will join us!

Following are the Love Run 2020 Date Change Policies (Please note all requests must be submitted by 4.10.20):

All March 29th participants will automatically be rolled over to the new October 10, 2020 date. You do not need to do anything at this time.

Deferral: You can get a 100% deferral into the 2021 Love Run Half Marathon & 7.6K. You must submit this deferral request by April 10th; after said date you will be rolled into the 10.10.20 event.

We want to thank you again for your kind words, patience, and also your positive energy as we work towards suitable resolutions for all of you.

The Love Run Team

Please bear with us in processing these requests as we will be inundated but we promise to respond to all inquiries.
