"It is Philly's hometown half marathon and the heart of the event has always been – and will continue to be – the Philadelphia running community," said Liz Pagonis, Philadelphia Runner's marketing director.

The half marathon, relay and 5K all loop through Fairmount Park. Runners will pass the Smith Memorial, Mann Music Center, Japanese Teahouse, Laurel Hill Cemetery and more.

After crossing the finish line, participants are encouraged to have a post-race tailgate and hang out. All runners will receive a T-shirt and finishers medal.
