Race organizers and the City of Philadelphia have decided to postpone the 2020 Blue Cross Broad Street Run to October 4, 2020. This decision was not taken lightly. Based on recommendations by the CDC and after consulting with the City’s Health Department, this is the best way to keep all runners, volunteers, staff, and spectators as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is an evolving situation and details are still being worked out. An FAQ has been developed to answer some of your questions:

In the meantime, runners can go to their user profile on runsignup.com to defer their bib to 2021 or transfer their bib, and the $15 transfer fee will be waived.
