The 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) and starts on Sunday, May 1, 2022 at 8:00 a.m.
The race begins at the Central High School Athletic Field on Broad Street between Fisher Avenue and Somerville Avenue. The course is a pleasing run through the varied neighborhoods of Philadelphia along Broad Street. The race finishes on Pattison Avenue west of Broad Street.
There’s nothing we love more in this town than a champion, but this year’s cheers will be virtual. Spectators are strongly discouraged from gathering on Broad Street and only registered runners are permitted at the start and finish line areas. Tune in to the live stream online or on NBC10!
This is a road race, not a walk. The event organizer, the City of Philadelphia and its 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 1, 2022 Broad Street Run, we will hold a virtual run and no refunds will be issued.
