The Unite Philly Run, sponsored by Rothman Institute and Vybe Urgent Care, brings together all of Philadelphia’s fitness lovers for a one-of-a-kind fitness scavenger hunt through iconic locations across Center City Philadelphia. This urban course is 3.5 miles (5k) with 4 “surprise” strength stations to complete along the way to provide a perfect cardio and strength workout. This also breaks down the endurance running to be accessible for any fitness level. You won’t know the exercises or # of reps until you run up to each station, but everyone will be performing them together. The inspirational energy of the crowd can be felt in the attached video from last year's run.
We are proud to announce the Unite Philly Run’s amazing new cause this year. We aim to combat global warming by bringing awareness to how to reduce your personal carbon/greenhouse gas emissions and then offset them through forestry projects where trees convert CO2 to oxygen. Funds raised will both saving old growth rainforest and replant forests that were cut for farming and logging.
Last year, we had over 400 people participate and are expecting even more this year. You’ll get to enjoy running through the streets of our fair city with a mob of like minded people so grab a friend and let’s go!
