The Philadelphia Marathon Weekend has grown tremendously since the first race in 1994. What started as a small local event of just 1,500 participants has become one of the top-10 marathons in the country. The beautiful and scenic course takes athletes past historic landmarks, through urban neighborhoods, and along Philadelphia’s picturesque waterfronts. Each year, spectators line the course, eager to cheer on athletes, because there’s nothing Philadelphians love more than champions.

Race Weekend 2024 features the AACR Philadelphia Marathon on Sunday, November 24; the Dietz & Watson Philadelphia Half Marathon, Rothman Orthopaedics 8K and Kids Fun Run on Saturday, November 23; and a free two-day Health & Fitness Expo on Friday, November 22 and Saturday, November 23. 

The Philadelphia Marathon Weekend Events are USATF sanctioned and course-certified.

Due to safety concerns, handcrank bikes are not permitted at any of the Philadelphia Marathon Weekend events.

 

The Philadelphia Marathon Weekend invites seasoned marathoners and first-timers alike. We are committed to ensuring equal access and opportunity for athletes of all gender identities. We offer three registration categories: men, women, and non-binary. Participants can select the category that best aligns with their gender identity. PLUS, our USATF-certified event requires no prequalifying times, ensuring it's open to all experience levels.
