Join us along with Bart Yasso (The former Chief Running Officer of Runner's World, and Mark Sullivan (Runner of all 25 Philadelphia Marathon) for a paint and run day with Mural Arts Philadelphia! At the 2018 Philadelphia Marathon Weekend, you voted for a mural to be painted for the 2019 Philadelphia Marathon Weekend events that encompasses the history of running in our city. Kala Hagopian from Hagopian Arts is this year's winner and we'll be painting the mural featured in the event cover photo!
Everyone will gather at the bottom of the Art Museum Steps for an 8:00am start. We will head out as a group and break off according to distance (three, five, or eight miles) and pace.
Choose your distance and FINISH in River Field Park (across from PMA and Eakins Oval) where we will be hanging out until 12:00pm with music, food, and drinks!
Arrive early to River Field to drop off any items you may want post-run. There will not be a gear check, but plenty of space and staff around to watch over “non-valuable” items.
We look forward to kicking off the Philadelphia Marathon Weekend Training with you all!
