Rock ’n’ Roll Half-Marathon

Media Title

Once known simply as the Philadelphia Distance Run, this annual 13-mile marathon regularly draws more than 20,000 runners from across the globe, raising millions of dollars for a total of 19 local charities. But while the course has been the site of five World Records over the years, the sidelines are where the real excitement’s at. At every mile along the route, spectators will find local cheerleading squads and dance teams shaking their pom-poms as part of the “Spirit on the Course” competition, as well as themed water stations and an eclectic mix of live music ranging from punk to jazz. That’s right—13 different stages, 13 different bands. Once participants have crossed the finish line, a post run concert will begin with headliner Haley Reinhart. On Friday and Saturday, the marathon will also sponsor a Health & Fitness expo at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. -Nicole Finkbiner
