by Melissa Romero on February 3, 2020

We are thrilled to announce our 2020 lineup of extra special guided runs! These 3- to 7-mile runs are designed for our 2020 Park Champion Runners who are running Broad Street Run with Fairmount Park Conservancy. (It’s not too late to join our team if you’re looking for a Broad Street Bib for 2020.)

Our guided runs will be led by Kevin Roche, the Conservancy’s Associate Director of Foundation Relations, who will share wonderful hidden gems in Philly’s parks through this series, from the Trolley Trail in West Fairmount Park to the history and future of FDR Park in South Philly.
