Lottery Registration

This year’s Independence Blue Cross Broad Street Run starts on Sunday, May 5, 2024, at 7:30 a.m.

The race begins at the Central High School Athletic Field on Broad Street between Fisher Avenue and Somerville Avenue. The Independence Blue Cross Broad Street Run course is a 10-mile, point-to-point course (named one of the fastest 10-mile courses in the country by Runner’s World) through the varied neighborhoods of Philadelphia along Broad Street. The 2024 race finishes in the Navy Yard.

Spectators are welcome to cheer on runners along Broad Street. The 2024 Independence Blue Cross Broad Street Run will also be livestreamed online and broadcast on NBC10.

This is a road race, not a walk. The event organizer, the City of Philadelphia, and the Philadelphia Police Department require that all participants run a sub-15 minute per mile pace to allow the City to re-open Broad Street in a timely manner. All runners not keeping this pace will be directed to the sidewalks to allow traffic to re-open.

If you decide to slow to a walking pace, please move to the curb lanes to allow faster participants more running room. If you plan to go at a slower pace, please do not line up at the front of your corral.

THERE ARE NO REFUNDS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. If health mandates related to a resurgence of COVID-19 compel us to cancel the May 5, 2024, Independence Blue Cross Broad Street Run, we will hold a virtual run and no refunds will be issued.
