Rothman Orthopaedics 8K

The Rothman Orthopaedics 8K (4.97 miles) is a fantastic way to take part in the race weekend excitement. Start on the expansive Benjamin Franklin Parkway, just below the steps of the Art Museum and looking out upon City Hall, before taking a turn on the scenic banks of the Schuylkill River and Martin Luther King Drive.

It's usually perfect running weather too, with fall well underway and temperatures averaging around 54°F/12°C. Don your autumn apparel and join us for this enjoyable race where we redefine the standard for an 8K.

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