You’ve probably heard of the new race to hit Philly this year: The Philly 5 Mile. This is a race, yoga and afternoon of live music hosted by the same folks who organize The Philly 10K and Philadelphia Runner.
The race features a course that’s never been run before down by the Navy Yard, a Yards Brewing Co. Beer Garden and a Backyard BBQ. Race day is scheduled for Sunday May 30th.
Registration will open Monday February 29th. You can register here. Registration is $75 for the race, $55 for yoga or $40 for the post-race festival only.
Information regarding the course from the race director:
“We have a course we think you will really like! We know “race in the Navy Yard” used to mean the same 5k loop course but thanks to unprecedented access by the Navy Yard, we have come up with a course that highlights the entire yard and offers a race experience and course never run on before.”
Good luck runners!
