Great race!!!! Awesome medal!!! Lots of chocolate!!!! I'm a man of few words but if you have any thoughts of doing this race, STOP thinking and START registering!!!! great execution from the expo to the race itself.

If I have any complaints its the parking thing in Philly but there are garages like 15min walk but I'm a cheapskate so I troll the streets looking for a free spot but I do lots of Philly races so I know what to expect.... JUST DO IT!!!!!!!11

Race: 4 miles through inner city the onto kelly drive along the river bank. 2 Nice size hills to overcome follow by a nice downhill otherwise it's a flat race
Perks are great long sleeve tech shirt,coffee mug,pair of phillies tickets and a huge medal!!!
One complaint was the expo was at the phillies home field and it's outdoor so it was windy and cold in March and had no interest in checking out vendor merchandise. Just wanted my bib and to get back in the warm car. March is hit or miss with weather and they struck out at this expo. Other than that I would recommend it and most definitely would race it again

Let me begin by saying this is a small marathon but overall a good time. Being a small race there is no expo of any kind just a table selling swag.
About the race itself... this is a challenge with the hills and the rolling hills there is very little flat parts in this race. so if you need a challenge then this is for you. Now I wish the race would run through the battlefield but it doesn't. Basically you run past it in the beginning and then never see it again.
Parking at the start is bad but the end has ample parking.
aid stations have water and Gatorade every 2 miles but GU is only at 16/20 miles could have had 1-2 more GU stops.
Overall its a great race and a great reason to spend the weekend and take in the history of one of the most famous battles in USA history.
