Philadelphia Half Marathon

For the second year in a row, the Philadelphia Marathon will be held on Saturday of race weekend. Conquer the newly designed 13.1 mile course through the neighborhoods of Philly and when you make it back to the parkway, visit our team of skilled massage therapists for your FREE post race sports massage! We will be on site from 8:30am-12 at the giant massage tent inside the finish festival grounds.

It's half the Marathon, with all the triumph!

Have the best time of your life completing 13.1 challenging miles that wind through Philadelphia’s most scenic and historic neighborhoods. From the history-steeped streets of Old City, through one of the liveliest stretches of Center City, across the Schuylkill, up through the bucolic trails of Fairmount Park, and back down to canvas the banks of the river. The course is also sanctioned by USA Track & Field.

The Half Marathon was added to Race Weekend in 2006 and has seen an increase in runners every year since. Whether as a test-run for first-time marathoners or as a challenging race along a scenic route, the Half Marathon has given thousands of runners the opportunity to take on the Philadelphia Marathon on their own terms.
