We are proud to announce Meb Keflezighi (pronounced Kef-lez-ghee) will be joining the 25th Anniversary AACR Marathon. Everyone who purchases a VIP package on Sunday, November 18th, will receive a copy of Meb's book.

The running legend will be signing books in the VIP tent between 11:30am - 1:30pm race day. Widely acclaimed as one of the greatest runners of our time, Meb brings a higher meaning to “going the distance.”

From his arrival in America a refugee from war-torn East Africa to his victorious finish at the emotionally charged 2014 Boston Marathon—now as a proud and patriotic American—Meb has secured not only his place in history, but also in the hearts and minds of millions.

Meb is the only athlete in history to win the New York Marathon (2009), the Boston Marathon (2014) and an Olympic Medal—impressive feats for someone who had never run a mile until middle school.

The Philadelphia Marathon weekend VIP package is available as an add-on during registration checkout.
