Expect beautiful views through Fairmount Park and along the Schuylkill River and neighborhood crowds gathering on sidewalks in University City and Manayunk. Weave through the well-traveled streets of the historic district, passing sights familiar to Franklin, Washington and the rest of the gang, and end your race speeding towards the steps of the majestic Art Museum. The Philadelphia marathon is a beautiful, fast, flat and scenic course and you’ll set a PR while supporting people living with Parkinson’s and research toward a cure. 

Parkinson’s Champions participate in the Parkinson’s Foundation’s community fundraising and endurance programs to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s disease (PD). Learn more at


PLEASE NOTE: The Philadelphia Half Marathon & 8k will occur on November 18th. The Full Marathon will occur on the 19th.
