Psst: that post-race festival includes free frozen custard (a drool-worthy Coffee and Donuts collaboration between Shake Shack and Federal Donuts) and Philadelphia Brewing Company beer, created specifically for the race for all. Yes, please!

Below, everything you need to know about this year’s race, plus when to set your alarm for registration. Read up, friends! Read more »

Can you BELIEVE the Philly 10K is already here?! Neither can we. But it is! So, to help you make it through the race (and, more importantly, to your free beer and custard) nice and strong, we got one of our favorite Philly runners, Rebecca Barber of the Rocky 50K, to put together an awesome playlist for you. Barber has made many a long running playlist — she does run 50Ks for fun, after all — so you are in good hands. Good luck, folks! (And pssst: If you’re running this weekend, make sure to come by our tent at the finish line festival for some yoga for runners and massages after the race!) Read more »
