Welcome to the trail less traveled.  Introducing Rundiscover Philadelphia, a new kind of running event that takes you to interesting places not found on your usual run.  During a four week period, we’ll provide you with four new and unique 5-ish mile courses to run in different parts of the city. These courses will take you across various landscapes and introduce you to landmarks from our city’s past. We’ll take you beyond the Rocky Steps and the Liberty Bell to discover things you may not have noticed before. The course distances are (approximately): Fairmount Park Trolley: 5.0 miles The Cliffs: 4.6 miles FDR Golf Club: 4.1 miles USS John F. Kennedy: 5.0 miles At the conclusion, all participants will earn a special poster commemorating the 4 courses and uncovering the hidden gems they contain. Rundiscover Philadelphia’s four parts take you twice to the great historic paths of Fairmount Park and twice below Pattison Ave, the deep south of the city. Registration opens June 24th at 10:00 AM. Courses will be emailed out starting on July 5th.  In order to prevent overcrowding, Rundiscover Philadelphia is limited to 2,500 registrants.  Event Dates: July 5th - August 1st Registration Cost: $38 Registration fee includes commemorative poster, $10 gift card to Philadelphia Runner and a $10 donation split between Fairmount Park Conservancy and Students Run Philly Style. Sign up at a special rate of $68 to gain entry to the race, all of the benefits above, AND a membership to the Fairmount Park Conservancy at a discounted rate just for our participants! Membership at this level includes stickers and free or discounted member events for one person.

Note about the registration process: In an effort towards inclusivity, Rundiscover has removed questions regarding gender identity and age from the registration process. For this reason, registrants will be asked to initial a parental approval waiver (because the system cannot confirm that you are over 18) at the conclusion of the registration process. Your confirmation email will state both your gender and age as N/A. Rundiscover partners are actively taking further steps to expand inclusivity in the collection of this information and other aspects of events going forward. We aim to provide broader access, inclusiveness, and support to all participants, spectators, and volunteers.
