Heads up if you’re looking for a way into the sold-out Philly 10K this fall: The Fairmount Park Conservancy has a few bibs for runners willing to fundraise.
The goal is $500—same as the fundraising minimum for charity bibs for the Broad Street Run—and funds go to support the group’s trail restoration project at the Belmont Plateau.
The Philly 10K, a new race created by Philadelphia Runner (and for which Be Well Philly is the exclusive media partner), is set for September 6th. It starts and ends near the Singing Fountain in South Philly’s Passyunk Square neighborhood, with the 6.2-mile course weaving through several of Philly’s most vibrant neighborhoods. The debut race sold out in just 70 minutes last month.
If you're interested in the Fairmont Park Conservancy's fundraising bibs, email Sarah Hirschler at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or to snag one of the spots. Bibs via other charities, including Back On My Feet and Students Run Philly Style, among others, will also be made available. We'll post on those when we have all the info.
