Even if running isn’t your thing, you can still be part of the action at the 2018 Blue Cross Broad Street Run on Sunday, May 6.
Here are three ways how:
- You can volunteer to help with race preparations, expo logistics, or race day needs. Jobs vary from greeting runners, to directing runners to the starting line, distributing water to runners, handing medals to runners at the finish line, and more. Plus, we’re looking for 260 volunteers to help make the Broad Street Run a zero waste event! Learn more about volunteer opportunities at the Broad Street Run, and read more specific information about helping with zero waste efforts.
- You can cheer on the runners. There will be music, cheerleading, and drill team performances at the event. There are plenty of great viewing spots along the route, with limited bleacher seating available at the finish line. Here’s a list of the best spots to view the race.
- You can bring your kids under 12 to the Philadelphia Navy Yard, the site of the finish line. There will be caricature artists, face painting, inflatables, a petting zoo, and balloon artists. Kids 3-12 years of age will also have the opportunity to compete in their own run. Registration opens at 7 a.m. and is $5 per child. The first 750 registered participants will receive a complimentary gift. Learn more about family activities at the finish line.
