You won’t be picking up your Philly 10K bib from a pre-race expo, because as the race’s co-founder Ryan Callahan says, “Race expos are the place where souls go to die.” So, like last year, they’ll be having a big pre-race bash the weekend of the race, delightfully named the Bibs and Beers Pick-Up Party, this time at Headhouse Square.

UPDATE 11/11 at 1:49 p.m.: According to the Philly 10K’s Facebook page, they’ve moved to a new registration company better equipped to handle the flood of folks trying to register for the race, and they’ll be reopening registration at 8 p.m. tonight. There are 2,500 spots left, and they will post the registration link on their Facebook page (here) shortly before 8 p.m. Good luck, runners! Read more »

This past Saturday, 3,500 runners made their way through 6.2 miles of the city’s streets in the very first Philly 10K. After a serious sweat session, runners were greeted with a cup of cold beer and some creamy custard at the finish line, because they freakin’ deserved it! Needless to say, it was an awesome day. And there is plenty of photographic evidence to prove it: Here, our 10 favorite Instagram shots of the big day. (The first comes courtesy of Be Well Philly’s Instagram—we caught a video of the very first male runner to pass our booth!)
You didn’t think we were going to leave you high, dry and music-less for the Philly 10K this weekend, did you? Even if you don’t run with music (who are you?!), you can totally use the playlist below to get yourself amped beforehand.
You’ll find a nice solid mix of classic, upbeat running-playlist songs, with some oh-so-Philly songs thrown in for good measure because—duh—this is the Philly 10K, after all, a race meant to celebrate all that is good and awesome about our city.
Ahhhh! It’s almost here! The Philly 10K is coming up this weekend, and we couldn’t be more excited. Whether you’re planning on running or spectating, here’s everything you need to know, from how to get to the starting area to where the Porta Potties will be (important!) to which coffee shops along the course will be open (you’re welcome, spectators!).
Here it is, hot off the presses (quite literally), folks.
If you weren’t able to get a bib for The Philly 10K this year, I’ve got some good news for you: The race is looking for volunteers, and they’ve got some pretty sweet perks for folks who sign up. Each volunteer will get a Philly 10K shirt, a $20 gift card to Philadelphia Runner, free beer and—drumroll, please—the ability to register for next year’s race before registration opens. Say whaaat?!
The folks at Philadelphia Runner are delivering on their promise to serve up a special beer honoring the first-ever Philly 10K and the Philly running community. (Don’t believe me? Check out the sick label on the left, and click it to make it bigger. So many running clubs!)
Brewed by none other than Philadelphia Brewing Company, the beer is meant to toast the September 6th race and local runners alike. It’ll be tapped at the pre-race expo at the Italian Market on Thursday, September 4th, and be served at the festival after the race on the 6th.
Here’s what Philadelphia Runner’s Ryan Callahan has to say about the so-named Philadelphia Runner’s Ale:
