Come join us in Philadelphia for a memorable weekend in the City of Brotherly Love!
Our beautiful scenic courses take runners past historic landmarks, through urban neighborhoods, and along Philadelphia’s picturesque waterfronts. Of course, you can’t forget the crowds!
A beautiful, fast, flat and scenic course, an engaging atmosphere—it’s no wonder we’re consistently listed among the top ten courses in the country, recognized for our flat terrain, mellow weather and spirited fans.
Expect beautiful views through Fairmount Park and along the Schuylkill River and neighborhood crowds gathering on sidewalks in University City and Manayunk. Weave through the well-traveled streets of our historic district, passing sights familiar to Franklin, Washington and the rest of the gang, and end your race speeding towards the steps of the majestic Art Museum.
Digital splits are provided at the 10K, 13.1 mile and 30K marks along the course, and fluid stations and spectator overlooks are set up throughout the course.
For 2022 - The Philadelphia Marathon founding goal has always been the promotion of health and fitness amongst both the local Philadelphia community and our national and international participants.
To stay true to these goals given the current public health challenges, we will require proof of full COVID-19 vaccination for in-person participation in all 2022 Philadelphia Marathon Weekend events. We are also enhancing safety protocols and reducing overall race capacities. We believe these changes will increase safety and protection for our devoted athletes.
