ABOUT THE RACE

Don't miss the annual SWCC 5k Run on Saturday, October 28th at 8:30 AM! Since 2009 participants have run through the beautiful residential streets of the Southwest Center City while helping to raise money to improve the neighborhood. The proceeds from this year's event will be donated to the Friends of Chester Arthur (FoCA) and Stanton Community Partners (SCP), 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations that benefit the neighborhood elementary schools. Starting at Chester A. Arthur Elementary School (20th and Catharine Streets) and running a double-loop course that highlights our beneficiaries, the scenic, urban route is not to be missed! For our younger athletes, the Spooky Sprint, a ~100 yard dash for kids under 6, will kick off at 8:00 AM. We've also added a new event this year, the Monster Mile, a one-mile fun run for kids ages 6-14, which will kick off at 8:05 AM. Please note that none of the kids races are timed events. We look forward to having you join us in one of Philly's favorite fall events and thank you for your support of our neighborhood!
