The Liberty Bell Challenge

Please note: The start line will close after the last runner in the last corral crosses the timing mat.

Make history in the city that defined American history!

If you love seeing the sights while running the distance, this is the challenge for you. Run the Dietz & Watson Half Marathon on Saturday and come back for the AACR Philadelphia Marathon on Sunday.

You will run past historic Philly landmarks such as the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Philadelphia Zoo, and the Art Museum. Completing the Half and Full Marathons will earn you the Liberty Bell Medal.

Also be sure to watch "26 Days to 26.2 Miles" and "13 Days to 13.1 Miles" for the inside scoop on both race courses!
