10.28.20 Update

We are thrilled to announce that the 2021 Love Run Philadelphia half marathon will be open for registration on 11.9.20. Please check your inbox for Opening Day!

Love Run Philly is known as Philadelphia’s premier spring half marathon and the ONLY half marathon from January – June in Philadelphia which results in the race selling out far in advance of race weekend to more than 11,000 runners.

This year, because many of you chose to defer your 2020 entry to 2021 we are already over half full before we even open general registration, meaning the race will likely sell out even faster than normal.

We want to thank you in advance for your support and understanding. Race day will most definitely look different than in the past and many operational aspects will be revised according to current protocols. We will offer the safest experience possible while following the guidelines set forth by our permitting agencies, WHO, and CDC.

Safety is paramount for CGI Racing. We are confident that we will be able to produce a safe 2021 race.



If you deferred your 2020 entry by submitting the deferral request form (you must have submitted this form by 9.1.20), you will receive a complimentary code by 12.1.20 to register for the 2021 race. If you do not receive a code by 12.1 (please do not email prior to that date) please email


Please note you are not automatically entered into the 2021 race and you must re-enter the race by 12/25/20. This will enable us to accurately monitor available 2021 slots.


2022 Deferrals will not receive their comp code until Fall 2021.

Check back here regularly for race updates.


7.14.20 Update

First, we want to thank you for your support, patience and understanding through this very difficult, ever changing time. The safety of our events is paramount. Not only the safety of each athlete, but that of their family, our staff, volunteers, spectators, police, medical and the community as a whole. Any decision we have made and will make moving forward is in the best interest of everyone.

As many of you may already be aware, the City of Philadelphia has made the difficult decision to cancel all city-wide events through the end of the year. Unfortunately, and much to our disappointment, the Love Run 2020 will not take place. While we would love to be racing with you again in the fall, we realize this is the best decision and imperative to our return to racing.


We understand that the postponement and cancellations of so many races has affected each of you very deeply and we want to do everything in our power to offer you a positive resolution.

You may choose one of the following options. Love Run 2020 Cancellation Policies.

Thank you in advance for your patience, understanding and support. We want to get back to racing as much as you do and look forward to that day…everyday!
