Hey, runners: Just a reminder that we’re teaming up with our friends over at Philadelphia Runner for our next pop-up training run for the Philly 10K on Monday, July 13th!
Guys, you officially have 10 weeks of training until the Philly 10K rolls around August 30th. What the whaaat?
As some of you might remember, last year, we teamed up with our friends at Philadelphia Runner (the folks who put together the race) to come up with a 10-week training plan to help get you in tip-top shape for the big day. And this year, we’ve got you covered again. Here, the Official Training Plan for the Philly 10K.
Calling all Philly 10K runners! We’ll be posting your official Philly 10K 10-Week Training Plan on Monday (so stay tuned for that), but the most important thing for you to know right now is that your training kicks off with a two-mile pop-up run with us next Monday, June 22nd!
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 »
I’ve got some very, very, very exciting news, people! As you probably already know, the second annual Philly 10K is coming up August 30th, and we’ve got all the insider info. First off, set an alarm for 10 a.m. on Monday, May 11th, because THAT, my friends, is when registration for the race will open.

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.
