“This race is known for being a fast one and we are thrilled to ROCK the city of ‘Brotherly Love’ for year six,” said Kevin Buffalino, Event Manager. “Because of the Pope coming to town, we’ve moved to a new date this year, which happens to be Halloween weekend. In celebration of the occasion, we’ll be hosting a costume contest and look forward to seeing participants and supporters in their best Halloween running gear.”
“The great thing is, the race will be done by mid-morning, so there’s plenty of time for families to prepare for evening Halloween festivities,” Buffalino said. “Plus runners will already have burned candy calories for the day.”
