Now in its fourth year, the Rock ′n′ Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon makes its return on Sunday, September 15.

This 13.1-mile race is not your ordinary athletic event. At every mile of the course, runners will be greeted with live performances by local bands and motivating encouragement from local cheerleading squads.

This music-cum-exercise extravaganza is part of the nationwide Rock ′n′ Roll Marathon Series, which has helped raise more than $283 million for a variety of nonprofit organizations during its 16-year history.

The excitement of event weekend kicks off with a free Health & Fitness Expo at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on Friday, September 13 and Saturday, September 14.

More than 100 exhibitors will be on hand to offer free product samples, showcase the latest running gear and provide nutrition and health information. Open to the public, the expo will operate from noon until 7 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Sunday brings race day, when more than 20,000 athletes from all 50 states and 19 countries will gather for the highly anticipated run.

Starting and ending at Eakins Oval in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the course winds along Kelly Drive adjacent to the scenic Schuylkill River, through energetic Center City and past historic Independence Hall.

After crossing the finish line, participants, friends and family are invited to kick back, relax and celebrate while enjoying the sounds of Walk Off The Earth at the finish line festival.

Register online today to guarantee your spot.

Entry fees are $120 in advance and $150 on-site, if capacity allows.
