Train for the Independence Blue Cross Broad Street Run

Training for the big race is just as important as running it. Whether you are training with a group or on your own, here are some great resources to help you prepare.

At Penn Orthopaedics, we take a whole-body approach to diagnosing and treating orthopaedic conditions. Our sports medicine physicians understand that so much of a runner’s success depends on commitment and careful preparation. We also realize how much an injury can stand in the way of you reaching your athletic goals.

As the Official Medical Provider of the Independence Blue Cross Broad Street Run, we will be with you every step of the way. Medical Director John M. Vasudevan, MD, CAQSM is here with his team of Penn Sports Medicine experts to help you stay healthy, avoid injury, and improve performance — before, during, and after race day.
