November 18th – 20th is Philadelphia Marathon weekend in Center City. Runners from all over the world come to Philadelphia’s fast and flat track to run a personal best and tosee some of Philadelphia’s most beautiful and historic landmarks. The course passes by Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross House, the Liberty Bell, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Main Street in Manayunk, Kelly Drive, City Hall, Old City, Penn’s Landing, and the Ben Franklin Parkway. There is also a half marathon and 8k run for those unable to complete an entire marathon.
The Philadelphia Marathon (aka the Philadelphia Independence Marathon), founded in 1954, is an annual marathon sporting event hosted by the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on the third Sunday of November each year. The course is a certified 42.195 kilometres (26.219 mi), and is sanctioned by the USA Track & Field. The course begins and ends at the Philadelphia Museum of Art on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Throughout the race, runners will travel through the heart of the city, including around City Hall. The course also features a trip along the Schuykill River and a visit to Manayunk. Digital splits are provided at each mile marker and the finish line. Water stations are supplied at the race start and miles: 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 12.2, 14, 15.5, 18, 19.5, 20.5, 22, 24, and the race finish. Replacement Fluid (Gatorade) will start at the Mile 5 water stop and continue to the Finish Line. Baggage can be checked at the Eakins Oval, beginning at 5:30 AM, and ending at 2:00 PM. Lost and found is also located there. The event’s November date can result in weather that is chillier than that which many runners from warmer climates are accustomed, and extra insulation is recommended. The event also serves as a qualifying race for entry into the Boston Marathon for participants whose times meet age group bracketed standards. The race also features a state of the art timing system, using a small chip that attached to the back of each runner’s bib that provides a ‘chip time’ for when the person has crossed the start and finish lines, as well as giving a traditional ‘gun time’.
