The Freedom Challenge

This is the ultimate fitness challenge!

Make sure you bring extra pairs of running shoes because you won’t stop running all weekend. Start with the Dietz & Watson Half Marathon early Saturday morning, and keep running in the Rothman Institute 8K a few hours later. 

Then on Sunday compete in the AACR Philadelphia Marathon.

Forget about seeing the sights – you won’t have the time! This is certainly not for the faint of heart, but if you finish all three races you will have earned the prestigious Freedom Challenge Medal.
