Philly Style 8K

Come out to the Belmont Plateau on April 14th for the first ever Back on My Feet Philly Style 8K! Our therapists will be on site from 9am-11 offering FREE post race massages to all runners!

About the Philly Style 8K

The Philly Style 8K is the premiere fundraising race for Students Run Philly Style, the only program in Philadelphia that transforms students' lives through long distance running and mentorship. When participating in this race, runners have the unique opportunity to experience Students Run Philly Style up close as over 1,000 Students Run Philly Style youth will be running!

Students Run Philly Style

Founded in 2004, Students Run Philly Style has created a movement of healthy young people in Philadelphia — a movement­­ that has touched multiple generations of families and measurably impacted the lives of its participants. We pair students with caring adult mentors and ask them to achieve a seemingly impossible goal: run 13.1 or 26.2 miles. Students and mentors train side-by-side, creating meaningful relationships over hundreds of training miles. Youth are empowered as they overcome the challenges of long distance running, ultimately achieving their goals at the finish line and transferring that empowerment to other parts of their lives.

About the 8K Cross Country Course

For decades high school, collegiate, and competitive runners have battled on the Belmont Plateau cross country course in Philadelphia's West Fairmount Park. Expect a mixture of single track, gravel path, and grassy field trails as you ascend and descend the hills of the Plateau. The elevation changes and non-paved terrain provide a fun challenge and a unique experience on a course that very few have the opportunity to race! Come with a spirit of adventure and a sense of humor--break up your Blue Cross Broad Street Run training with a jaunt through the woods. There will be a water stop along the course, port-a-potties at the start/finish, and an ambulance on site.

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.

Oh, that’s another thing: the fans. You'd better get ready for the crowds, because each year, thousands of spectators line the course eager to cheer on runners. There's nothing we love more in this town than a champion...all 30,000 of them.
