The runs will take place on MLK Drive, providing runners with a fast, flat course along the Schuylkill River.

Since 1981, the Clean Air Council has held the Run for Clean Air in Philadelphia to celebrate Earth Day. Once again, race day will be a zero-waste event. 

The Run for Clean Air is utilizing solar generators, recyclable run bibs, paperless on-site registration and T-shirts printed with sustainable inks to minimize the environmental impact.

Participants are encouraged to also do their part by walking, biking or taking public transportation over. A free bike valet will be available.

There will be a chance to try out motorized scooters provided by Lime, as well, and pre-race group yoga will be held for all runners.
