Getting to the start

Getting to the start

The start area is located on the grounds of the Central High School Field at Broad Street and Somerville Avenue.

You have several options to get there on race day.

Coming from inside the city: The best way to get to the start area is to take the Broad Street Line, free of charge. Simply show your race bib to the cashier at any Broad Street Line station.

Coming from outside the city: For those taking Regional Rail or the Market-Frankford Line from outside of the city to Suburban Station, you can hop on the Broad Street Line at City Hall Station.

Once you’ve parked, you can get to the start area one of two ways:

  • Take the Broad Street Line at NRG Station near the Stadium Complex for FREE
