PDR is among the fastest Half Marathons in the world (6 world records have been broken here) and is known for its super fast and flat course. Whether you are an elite runner, looking for a new PR, or just want to breeze through the City of Brotherly Love with thousands of fellow runners, there is something for everyone at PDR!
Your registration includes:

PDR aims to make registering as accessible as possible. If you are are unable to pay digitally or via a check with a paper registration, please email us so we can assist.
Expo/Bib pick up
In-person participants are invited to pick up their items at the PDR Pick Up Party Presented by Brooks Running. Dates and locations will be announced soon. In-person participants must pick up at the Pick Up Party unless they have paid for race day pick up during registration. We do not offer bib shipping, but we do offer Race morning pick-up for an additional fee (see Products). Race morning pick up must be purchased ahead of time. We do not offer walk-up race day pick up without prior purchase.
Bibs, shirts, and medals for virtual participants will be shipped directly to them, and shipping is included in the registration fee.
Stay tuned to our website for more information on the course, expo, corral assignments, and other helpful tips.
Due to the year-round nature and costs of event planning, PDR does not offer refunds but we do offer the ability to defer or transfer your registration for a fee.
