Now in its sixth year, the WXPN 5k Run is an annual community fundraising event for WXPN Musicians On Call which brings musicians to the bedsides of patients in the Delaware Valley. Participate by running, walking, or donating and you'll be helping to deliver the healing power of music to those who need it most.

Choose your course:

  • The USATF-certified 5k course for runners
  • The family-friendly Funky Miler for walkers

Registration includes:

  • Soft tri-blend race shirt
  • 80s Dance Party with DJ Robert Drake
  • Pre-race yoga warmup
  • Post-race snacks
  • All the feels you get from knowing that your support helps bring a few minutes of joy to hundreds of hospitalized patients each week.

The first 200 registrants will receive a long-sleeve tee featuring the message "I support the healing power of music" and the WXPN Musicians On Call logo, courtesy of our lead sponsor Subaru.
