On the upside, we have more time to train...
On Sunday, May 3rd, along with roughly 35,000 other runners from Philadelphia and around the world, I was set to run the biggest 10 mile race in the country, Philadelphia's annual spring run down Broad Street. But today, the city and race organizers made the call to postpone the race until the fall. The new date = October 4, 2020.
Runners will be able to defer or transfer their bibs if they so choose. Me, I plan to be at the start (and finish) line this fall. Below is the race's official statement and links to more info and FAQs
Race organizers with 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 Health Department, this is the best way to keep all runners, volunteers, staff, and spectators as safe as possible during the #COVID19 outbreak.
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.
Thank you for your support and understanding during this time and please stay safe.
