The Love Run Philadelphia is a half marathon that launched in 2014 and has quickly become a Philadelphia favorite. "The race that loves you back" is all about creating a special experience for runners from start to finish (with great swag, a fun course that winds through Fairmount Park, beautiful views over the Strawberry Mansion Bridge and an awesome finish line festival) and it’s organizers, CGI Racing, are dedicated to making Philadelphia a better place through their charitable giving program, and Fairmount Park Conservancy has been The Love Run Philadelphia's official charity partner since 2016.
“Thanks to CGI Racing and The Love Run Philadelphia half marathon, we have expanded our projects and programs for the benefit of all park users and supporters. Thank you for your support of Philadelphia’s parks and Fairmount Park Conservancy!”, Executive Director, Rick Madger.
