Philly’s First-Ever Love Run Half Marathon on Pace to Sell Out

love runOrganizers for the Love Run Half Marathon on March 30th say their race is poised for a sell-out—an impressive accomplishment, considering this is a first-time race for Philly.

As of now, there are a handful of the 10,000 spots left, but spokesperson Kate Matheson says they’re on track to sell out in the next week or so. She says they’re also a contender to become the largest inaugural half marathon in the country in 2014. Go, Philly!




The biggest selling point of the Love Run is its emphasis on teams. Matheson says the race will host over 150 teams for its debut race. Teams of 20 or more get special race-day perks, like a designated team Porta Potty (smart!) and a tent.

Registration closes on March 15th, if it hasn't sold out by then.
