If all spots are not filled by 2020 registrants, the Broad Street Run announced Wednesday that there will be a limited lottery to fill any remaining spots. Previously, the race had said there would be no lottery.

2021 marks the race's return to an in-person event. The 2020 Broad Street Run was originally delayed due to the city's coronavirus restrictions but was changed to a virtual event, with people encouraged to run the 10 miles on their own.

All runners who were guaranteed a spot in the 2020 race but cannot attend this year can either defer to 2022 or register for the 2021 race and transfer their bib to another runner. No refunds will be issued.

The Broad Street Run started in 1980. It's described as the largest, fastest and most popular 10-mile race in the country, drawing more than 40,000 participants from all over.
