March 25, 2018. Head to the City of Brotherly Love for what is known as the “Race that Loves You Back”! It’s the Love Run Philadelphia Half Marathon. This race takes full advantage of its location by starting out and finishing at the base of the famous steps of the Museum of Art where Rocky trained (can you hear the music!). The rest of the course is relatively flat and travels through downtown Philly, passing historical landmarks, parks, and picturesque neighborhoods. Voted best race swag, there’s a big pre-race expo, a long sleeved premium tech shirt, glass coffee mug, free race photos, free beer, large, epic finishers medal, and of course, a big post-race party with music, food, and giveaways. This is a popular race that is in its fifth year and has sold out every year, so sign up quickly to avoid being left out of the Love!
