2020 Philly Run Fest Cancellation

After careful deliberation and consideration of the current public health crisis, we have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel Philly Run Fest this year. The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, staff, spectators, vendors, sponsors, and community is our top priority. We know this news is disappointing. We understand the time, hard work, and effort that goes into race training. We believe this is the responsible action to take in effort to keep everyone safe and not take valuable resources away from our local health system.

We are extremely grateful for your support, understanding and patience as we navigate this unfamiliar course and present options for your consideration:

  • VIP Entry to run in 2021! Defer your registration to Philly Run Fest 2021 and receive an upgrade to VIP status along with a $30 gift card toward a pair of ON Running Shoes from Philadelphia Runner.
  • Donate your entry to Students Run Philly Style! Our official charity partner is on course every year cheering and volunteering. Students Run Philly Style is a unique mentorship program that uses a simple approach to fostering resilience in Philadelphia youth: a pair of sneakers and a caring adult. Your donation will help provide running shoes, gear, and support to student runners throughout the area. Any runner who wishes to donate their registration fees will need to access their RunSignUp account and edit their registration by June 7th, 2020.
  • Receive a store credit to Philadelphia Runner's online shop! Convert your registration fee to a credit to shop local online with Philadelphia Runner. Any runner who wishes to receive a store credit will need to access their RunSignUp account and edit their registration by June 7th, 2020.
  • Receive a refund. We know how frustrating it is to prepare for a race that doesn't happen. While it is not our policy to offer refunds, we are making an exception in this extraordinary situation. Any runner who wishes to have their registration fees refunded will need to access their RunSignUp account and edit their registration by June 7th, 2020.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns. Again, we appreciate your understanding during this difficult time for all of us. Your support means so much to us. We look forward to running with you all next summer! Until then, be safe and keep running!
