Philadelphia Half Marathon - 03.26.17

The Course

The Love Run Philadelphia Half Marathon course will start and finish at the beautiful Art Museum at Eakins Oval.

You will run the awesome streets of Philadelphia passing some of the Nations most historical landmarks to wind back past friends and family lining the Benjamin Franklin Parkway where you will enter Fairmount Park. You will run through the picturesque roads of the park to make your "sprint" to the finish in front of Eakins Oval and home of the "Rocky Steps". 

The course will take you on roads you love to run with some new, exciting additions and offers many areas where your family and friends can cheer you on.



The 2017 Love Run will take you through even more of downtown Philly & remove some of the hills in Fairmount Park. Making for a super fast, super fun course!  Again we are ...the race that loves you back -  always improving to offer you the best half marathon experience.




Walkers Welcome

Please note – while all runners will be chip timed, the course cut off will be determined from the official start of the race or gun time.  We have factored in the time it will take for the last corrals to cross the start line. Please plan your training accordingly.
