Some good news for the region on this fine Wednesday morning. The Broad Street Run is coming back to Philly this fall.
After the race went virtual last year due to COVID-19, the 10-mile race will run this year back on its regular route on Sunday, October 10. The race marks another big step forward for the area as it makes its way back to a sense of normalcy.
In case you’re wondering, the Eagles are on the road that day with a 1 p.m. kickoff against the Panthers.
Here are some quick notes on the registration process:
- Registration for the 2020 race will carry over to this year. In other words, if you had a spot last year, then you will have one this year. Registration for 2020 participants opens at 12:01 a.m. on July 15, which is just after midnight tonight.
- It will stay open through July 29 at 11:59 p.m., giving those interested roughly two weeks to lock in a spot. There will be a 20% discount to the $57 registration fee.
- If spots remain unfilled past that window, those who weren’t registered for last year’s race will then be offered a limited lottery to get in.
Over the years, the race, which began in 1980 with 1,500 participants, now draws up to 40,000 runners.
