Philadelphia is a special place to be on the 4th of July. 241 years ago, the founding fathers adopted the Declaration of Independence creating a new nation, the United States of America, right here in our city. Is there a better place to celebrate our independence than in the place that did it first?
Living in and around Philadelphia, we get to run through history every day. From the oldest residential street in America to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, the city of brotherly love is full of historic neighborhoods and landmarks that witnessed the birth of our country (and so much more). You could be retracing the footsteps of Thomas Jefferson or Ben Franklin, among others, while running through the city streets.
To celebrate America's birthday, we're having a special 4th of July sale - all full priced items are buy 1, get 1 half off through the 4th (certain exclusions apply) and our shops will be open until 4PM on Independence Day. Mizuno Running will be stopping by our Center City shop on Thursday at 6PM for a Star Spangled Scavenger Hunt
MIzuno is also adding a some fun to week 6 of our summer challenge. We want you to show us how Philly Runs the 4th. Post a patriotic photo on instagram with #runlocalphl and tag us @phillyrun to win 1 of 2 prizes: a gift card to Philadelphia or a prize from Mizuno Running.
Go forth and have fun! Happy Independence Day Philly!
