UPDATE 11:40 a.m.: Holy moly, people, this race is officially sold out—already! Here’s a follow-up post with official sell-out stats from Philadelphia Runner. Also, there will be bib giveaways in the coming weeks and months, so I’ll let you know about those, too!
Attention, runners! If you’re hoping to snag a spot in the Philly 10K—you know, the coolest new race to hit Philly—get your gears in motion. General registration is officially open for business.
Yesterday, Philadelphia Runner opened a pre-registration period for the folks on its email list. The 1,500 spots, which is half the field for the race, filled up in just 3.5 hours. The other 1,500 slots are now up for grabs for the general public. We’ll monitor the situation and be in touch with Philly Runner in case the site gets overloaded, but the place to hit the register button is here.
The Philly 10K, a brand new race for our city put together by our friends over at Philadelphia Runner, will take place on September 6th. The race begins and ends in the Passyunk Square neighborhood in South Philly, and covers 6.2 miles of city streets in iconic Philly neighborhoods. Check out the course map here.
We’ve partnered up with Philly Runner as the race’s official media partner (woo!) so count on lots more coverage in the coming weeks and months, as well as some pop-up events, insider details and more.
Registration is $55 until June 1st, though I’m sure it’ll sell out well before then. Good luck to everyone registering today!
