[10/13] RiverCity Festival Tioga-Franklin 5k Fun Run

The 11th Annual RiverCity Festival kicks off with the Tioga-Franklin 5k FUN RUN through the streets of Fishtown. The race kicks off Saturday October 13th, 2018 at 12pm beginning and ending at historic Penn Treaty Park highlighting businesses in the neighborhood. Slow down and take notice of the variety of shops, bars, restaurants, and fitness opportunities in the Riverwards, or speed on by – but remember, this is an untimed fun run and the course is not closed. Keep an eye out for traffic! As always, the fun run raises funds to support the Fishtown Neighbors Association.

21+ registration for $25 includes 2 beverage tickets to enjoy in the RiverCity Hospitality Tent, featuring your favorites from Philadelphia Brewing Company, St. Benjamin Brewing, Evil Genius, and more! Under 21/non-drinker registration is available for $15.

We put on this run with the support of the Fishtown Beer Runners, a neighborhood running club that is no stranger to running and enjoying a brew post-5k. Their motto is to combine responsible running and drinking in the interest of science; they’re adding in some volunteering and will be out to help mark the course, provide directions, and offer encouragement. 

All registrants get a sweet tech t-shirt. Register early to guarantee your shirt size!  Registration will remain open until a sell out; if space is still available, race day registration will be $30 for 21+, and $20 for a non-drinker registration. The run is capped at 200 runners.
