Fairmount Park Conservancy Has Bibs for the Philly 10K

Philly-10K-BadgeHeads 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.
