Warm Up For Sunday's Races With Saturday's Rothman 8k And Get A Special Charm
Running the Rothman 8K on Saturday before the Marathon or Half Marathon has plenty of benefits:
- Prepare for the Start Line on Sunday and get a sneak peak of the Start/Finish Area
- Experience part of the Marathon and Half Marathon Course--the scenic Schuylkill River and Boathouse Row--as you run down MLK Drive
- The first 400 people to register for the Rothman 8K together with the Marathon or Half Marathon will receive a charm to fit on the ribbon of their finisher medal
This year, the Philadelphia Marathon introduces QR codes on our runner's bibs. Scan a picture of the QR Code on the front of the runner's bib, and link to the participant's results page for official race timing. Don't forget to download a QR Code reader on your Smart Phone.
