City Announces Scaled Back Philadelphia Marathon Weekend

The City of Philadelphia is pleased to announce the Philadelphia Marathon Weekend will be held from November 19 to 21 at a reduced capacity. We are excited for the return of an iconic Philadelphia running event and are committed to creating the safest environment possible for our staff, athletes, volunteers and partners.
The AACR Philadelphia Marathon, Dietz & Watson Philadelphia Half Marathon, the Rothman 8K, and the Liberty/Freedom/Patriot and Independence Challenges will be offering a virtual option for those who wish to participate from a location of your choice. Virtual runners will have the month of November to complete their run. For additional marathon weekend details, go to our FAQ section.
