The Broad Street Run has been postponed.

We saw it coming.

Originally set for Sunday, May 3rd, the new tentative reschedule date is Sunday, October 4th, 2020.

This afternoon 35,000+ would-be participants received this message via-mail:

“Race organizers and 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’s Health Department, this is the best way to keep all runners, volunteers, staff, and spectators as safe as possible during the #COVID-19 pandemic.”

Runners who signed up and are unable to participate in the new date on October 4th may defer their race bib to next year’s race in 2021.

Here’s a FAQ page with more information.

Look on the bright side, now we have 194 more days to train. :/
