Philadelphia Marathon, 1/2 Marathon & 8K – November 18-19, 2017

November 18, 2017 - November 19, 2017

 

Back in the City of Brotherly Love, Team Move For Hunger is ready to run, walk and move away hunger and food waste at the Philadelphia Marathon, 1/2 Marathon & 8K! Since its’ inception in 1994, this race has grown to become of the 10 largest marathons in the country, making it one of the nation’s best. With a flat and fun course, this race is perfect for those looking to PR or just enjoy a scenic trip through historic Philadelphia. Beginning and ending at the iconic Eakins Oval, the course offers some amazing scenery including the Art Museum, Liberty Bell and the Delaware and Schuylkill rivers.

 

In the state of Pennsylvania, over 1.6 million residents need help putting food on the table, with over 17% of those in need being children. At the same time, 40% of food produced in the United States ends up in a landfill. You can help make sure this much needed food ends up in the hands of those who need it most, not thrown away with the trash. By fundraising with Team Move For Hunger, your donations enable us to continue our life saving services of supporting our nations’ food banks and reducing food waste.
