Philadelphia Marathon Weekend

Training Run Schedule

Join us, Bart Yasso (The former Chief Running Officer of Runners World, Mark Sullivan (Runner of all 25 Philadelphia Marathon), and our friends at PHILADELPHIA RUNNER for the 2019 training runs as we prepare for the 2019 Philadelphia Marathon Weekend!

Everyone will gather at the bottom of the Art Museum Steps for an 8:00am start. We will head out as a group and break off according to distance and pace. 

Choose your distance and FINISH in River Field Park (across from PMA and Eakins Oval) where we will be hanging out until 12:00pm with music, food, drinks, and giveaways from our partners! 

Arrive early to River Field to drop off any items you may want post-run. There will not be a gear check, but plenty of space and staff around to watch over “non-valuable” items.  

We look forward to kicking off the Philadelphia Marathon Weekend Training with you all!

NOTE: Google Maps Address for River Field:  400-442 N 24th St, Philadelphia, PA 19130

September 7 - Dietz & Watson Philadelphia Half Marathon Kick Off Training Run!

This run will also be part of our Mural Arts paint day and the last opportunity for runners and fans of mural to participate in painting the Marathon Mural!

At the 2018 Philadelphia Marathon Weekend, you voted for a mural to be painted for the 2019 Philadelphia Marathon Weekend events that encompasses the history of running in our city. Come be part of a paint day with the selected artist, Kala Hagopian from Hagopian Arts, to help paint a portion of the mural and leave your mark on running history in Philly!

Note: you do not have to run to participate in the painting project!

Everyone will gather at the bottom of the Art Museum Steps for an 8:00am start. We will head out as a group and break off according to distance (3, 5, or 8 miles) and pace.
