When the 36th Annual Blue Cross Broad Street Run races through the city on Sunday, May 3 thousands of runners will test their limits and strive for personal goals along the route. To keep up their spirits, spectators will line up along the race course to cheer on friends, family and neighbors. Live bands, cheerleaders and drill teams will add to the support.
Plenty of spots along Broad Street will welcome spectators. The run officially suggests the following spaces:
• South Broad Street at Packer Avenue
• Broad and Pattison at the Sports Complex
There will also be limited seating at bleachers by the finish line, along Broad Street between Intrepid and Farragut avenues.
The finish line at the Navy Yard will host special post-race activities and refreshments for runners as well as activities open to the public, including a children's area called "Kids Fun at the Broad Street Run." Children under 12 can participate in games, rides, a petting zoo and more for $5.
