UPDATE 3/23/2020: Race organizers and the City of Philadelphia have decided to postpone the 2020 Blue Cross Broad Street Run to October 4, 2020. This decision was not taken lightly. Based on recommendations by the CDC and after consulting with the City’s Health Department, this is the best way to keep all runners, volunteers, staff, and spectators as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is an evolving situation and details are still being worked out. Please visit the Broad Street Run’s website for more information.

Broad Street Run

Don’t just run in Fairmount Park, run for it! Join our Fairmount Park Conservancy Blue Cross Broad Street Run 2020 team of Park Champions and enjoy great perks. Help raise funds for Philly’s parks and get guaranteed entry for the 2020 run on May 3rd. Thanks to hundreds of runners who have participated over the last 8 years, we’ve been able to restore the historic Belmont Plateau 5k Cross Country Course and have built the first sections of the Trolley Trail—a planned 5 mile soft trail loop around West Park following the route of the former Fairmount Park Trolley. Help us continue our work and join our team!

Here is a Q&A with one of our runners from 2018 about why he chose to run with us. And here are our Top 5 Reasons to run with us for Broad Street.

For individual sign up, participants are asked to pay a $25 registration fee and then commit to raising $475 using the GoFundMe platform by June 1st, 2020. Sign up here.

EVENT DATE: MAY 3, 2020 7:30AM
