About this Event

All Proceeds Benefit Veterans. This is a fundraising effort for The Corporal Michael J. Crescenz Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Specifically, your ticket purchase supports (1) Homeless Veterans Transitioning into Permanent Housing and (2) Veteran Suicide Prevention.

Overview: This five-mile Philly river-to-river fun run showcases more than two dozen military-related sites in Center City Philadelphia. We will briefly stop at a few key locations along the way to highlight important pieces of military history .

Route: From Schuylkill River Park, we move north and then east to iconic City Hall, south down Broad Street, east to Old City and the Delaware River Waterfront. Lastly, we head south to the finish line AKA Cosmi's for an exclusive deal. 50% off all cheesesteaks (that's less than $5 apiece!) and valid only for this group for what's twice been voted Best in Philly.
