To be clear the Rocky 50K is a fat ass run, not a race. It costs $0 and has no aid, no shirts, no swag, no nothing. Just runners gathering together to have a great time running 31 miles. The run was created to follow the route Rocky ran in Rocky II. This run takes you from South Philly, to North Philly, through Center City, Kensington, West Kensington and back down along Kelly Drive back into Center City and then finishing atop the Art Museum steps just like Rocky himself. This year was the second year and my second year running. There's so much enthusiasm and just pure running run. There's no better feeling than finishing a 31 mile run, fist pumping on top of the Art Museum steps overlooking Center City Philadelphia. There's no better way to take a tour of Philly whether you live there or not!!
