A race where you don’t have to finish first to win? It exists! (Don’t worry, it’s not some cheesy, “Everybody is a winner” kind of thing. Promise.) The Snowflake Prediction Run, happening this Sunday, is a time-prediction run. So runners predict their finish times and whoever finishes closest to their predicted time wins.


Participants can choose to run three, five or eight miles. And feel free to bundle up, but leave your watch at home: No watches or pacing devices are permitted during the run.

After the race, runners can warm up with a hot cup of coffee at The Cedars House. Oh! And there will be prizes! Winners will take home fitness swag courtesy of Verge Yoga, Philadelphia Runner, Indigo Schuy and Philly Bloco.

All proceeds will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Find out more about the run here.

$10, February 2nd, Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. at Northwestern Avenue and Forbidden Drive, Philadelphia.
