Back for our fifth year in the City of Brotherly Love, Team Move For Hunger is ready to rock the streets of Philly for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia 1/2 Marathon, 10K & 5K! Join us as we participate in one of the countries’ most respected endurance races, all while raising much needed funds to help the food insecure residents in your own community. There are more than 1.6 million Pennsylvania residents that need help putting food on the table, with over 17% of those in need being children. By joining Team Move For Hunger, your fundraising donations enable us to continue our lifesaving services of supplying our nation’s food banks and reducing food waste. With 95% of every dollar contributed going directly towards our programming, it’s a fun and easy way to help the hungry and make your race count. Let’s turn those miles into meals!
Starting and finishing in the famous Eakins Oval, half marathon runners enjoy this historical city by winding through some of the nation’s most important landmarks. A fast and flat course, runners start off in downtown and then cruise along the Schuylkill River for an epic finish right in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. After a great race, participants are treated to bands, beer and fun at a finish line festival that is perfect for the whole family.
