Health & Fitness Expo
Packet Pickup Party
Participant Information

The packet pickup party is a fantastic kickoff to the spring running season and the Love Run Philly race weekend. We’re doing something different this year. We’re gettting you pumped up for an awesome race experience with an epic beer garden (think mini beer festival) featuring games, great music. interactive zones, & super swag. Stop by the You Brag, We Swag Photo Booths. You’ll be glad you did. And yes, there will be last minute race needs from some of your favorite vendors.

This is not your stuffy, old expo. This is a pre-race party for all your family and friends.

Teams meet up on Friday or Saturday for a pre race carb load (and by carb we mean beer) and we’ll do a free team photo. Pre-reservations required. Email to reserve.

Friday March 27th      3:00 PM – 6:30 PM
Saturday March 28th  10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
