- 3 miles/5K
- Road Race
To forewarn you, the race itself is not that exciting.
If you like Phillies baseball, this is one week before the season starts, and game tickets are included! Best bang for your buck! (If you like baseball)
Before the race starts, there are mascots making their rounds, a live band, and a few former players on stage.
The phanatic kicks off the race on his 4 wheeler after the anthem.
The race goes around Citizens Bank Park, around the backside of Lincoln Financial Field, and down into the Navy Yard. (Actual scenery just the major streets by the stadiums). There are a few spots of soldiers cheering you on in the Navy Yard, which was pretty cool. A slight incline after the navy yard, then down broad, and the final straight away.
Post race: you get to walk the warning track to around home plate! And then you get a free beer over at Xfinitylive!
Aid stations: at least two water stations, more than enough for a 5k. Water, bananas, and pretzel after the race.
Parking: stadium parking, plenty of it!
Swag: tech hoodie. Hope it holds up better than last yrs Tee. The logo from last yr's shirt is scratching off. Medal, this yr was the liberty bell, last yr was a baseball cap. Both medals have magnets on the back side.
