I have run this 9 times and every time only gets better! The race starts in North Philly and ends in South Philly at the Navy Yard. It is completely flat the entire 10 miles! There are people cheering from start to finish ending with the Mayor giving high fives to everyone.

It has gotten more and more crowded over the year so the first few miles move a little slow. However, the crowds in that area are so amazing that it’s a good trade off for me.

The medals are great quality and they have switched to tech shirts in the last couple years.

This year it rained the entire race and I still had the best time!

I have run this half 3 times and had a great experience for each one. The race starts at the Art Museum and winds around through the city. The crowds are amazing especially around city hall and the scenery is great showcasing different parts of the city.

There are a few hills but for the majority are the race you are running flat.

I would definitely recommend this as a fun filled Spring half!

This was my first marathon in my own city! I love Philly races and this one did not disappoint. I have done the half several years but this was my first year doing the full. A good portion of the course is flat but there are some hills mixed in towards the middle and up through Manayunk. Even though you are running uphill the crowds in Manayunk make up for that. Their energy is amazing as they cheer, hand out cups of hydration and beer (😂). The streets are lined with these awesome fans for several miles there.

The end of the race is all flat and ends right in front of the Art Museum steps. The medal is always big and bold and the aid stations set up nicely.

The expo for the race is also really good. Since I live in Philly I take the train but there are plenty of parking lots around if you drive.

All in all great 26.2!

This was my 4th Rock n Roll Half. From the expo to the final mile everything was great!

The race starts and ends at the Philly Art Museum and it draws a huge crowd that is full of energy. The weather can be warm but it starts early enough that it is never too bad.

There are plenty of aid stations with awesome volunteers. The music half way thru and towards the end is so energizing and keeps you pushing thru!

There are a few hills but nothing too hard and for the most part the course is flat and fast.

Would recommend this race series!!
