Our history and our future: For decades, you had a chance to participate in the Broad Street Run. In 2019, for the first time, we brought you the chance to run or walk the Market Street loop, from the Delaware River to the Schuylkill River, in support of the men and women of the Philadelphia Police Department. Starting in historic Old City just a stone’s throw from the Delaware River and running 2.5 miles along Market Street to the shadow of 30th Street Station above the mighty Schuylkill River; looping back to the finish line to complete 5 miles.

In 2020, we will be virtual. Sign up today and download the RaceJoy app to embrace this unique and fun run or walk experience 

In 2021, we will return to run (or walk) through a most iconic stretch of Philadelphia’s historic area and Center City's business district -- from Old City to 30th Street and back!

Purpose of the Event:
1) The Market Street ‘Run for Blue’ is a fund-raiser for the Philadelphia Police Foundation and a competitive or fun 5 mile run/walk experience for all participants. To Learn about the important work of the Foundation visit here:
