The Kids Fun Run

Get the kids involved in all of the fun of Philadelphia Marathon Race Weekend! Join us for the Kid's Fun Runs, short distance, and non-competitive events for youngsters five years to 12 years of age. Each age group will enjoy dashes, half mile or full mile distances on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Because this run is all about fun, runners will not be timed.

Important note: As a result of this vaccination requirement, the Kid's Fun Run will be open to fully vaccinated children 5 and older. Philadelphia Department of Public Health guidance for COVID-19 vaccination of children can be found at

Family Fun Activities - More details coming soon.

Age Group Dashes (Children ages 5 to 12) - The Kids Fun Run activities will include a series of short distance dashes, beginning at noon. Each age group will have a separate race with age-appropriate distances. Participants will receive special goodies and giveaways.

Mile and Half Mile Kids Fun Run (Children ages 5 to 12) - Mile and Half Mile races will begin immediately following the dashes. Participants will get the thrill of running on the AACR Philadelphia Marathon course! Participants will receive a finisher medal and t-shirt.

To join the run, children must have a parent or guardian present. Waivers are required and will be available on site.
