You're Going To Love This Course
Half Marathon Course

The Love Run Philadelphia Half Marathon course will start and finish at the beautiful Art Museum at Eakins Oval.

You will run the awesome streets of Philadelphia passing some of the Nations most historic landmarks to wind back past friends and family lining the Benjamin Franklin Parkway where you will enter Fairmount Park. You will run through the picturesque roads of the park to make your “sprint” to the finish in front of Eakins Oval and home of the “Rocky Steps”.

The course will take you on roads you love to run with some new, exciting additions and offers many areas where your family and friends can cheer you on.

More Center City – Less Hills

The Love Run takes you through even more of downtown Philly which means just one small hill in Fairmount Park. Making for a super fast, super fun course!

Again we are …the race that loves you back –  always improving to offer you the best half marathon experience.

Time Limit: 3.5 hours

Love Run Philly 7.6K

Try our 7.6k distance which goes totally thru the city. The course runs along the same course as the half marathon course running down the Benjamin Franklin Parkway around City Hall and the epic sights of Center City (you pass so many we can’t even begin to list them all).

Same Day. Same Race Swag. Same Unforgettable Experience.

For those of you who aren’t ready to tackle the half marathon (oh you will next year) we have the perfect race for you.  The 7.6K starts the same time as the half marathon and also begins and ends at the iconic art museum steps.

Trust us you’re going to love this race!

This race distance is limited to 2,500 runners so sign up now because when it sells out (and it will) you will have a big old case of DIMO (darn I missed out).
