Overview

One of the most historic races in the nation, the Philadelphia Marathon covers fast and mostly flat terrain, crossing the heart of Philadelphia and some of the city’s most iconic landmarks — including Independence Hall, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Liberty Bell Center. Its origins date back to the 1920s.

The 30,000 racers taking on the marathon begin and end their journey on the tree-lined Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

The 26.2-mile course, scheduled for November 18-20, 2022, winds through the city’s historic attractions and scenic outdoor spaces, passing along the charming streets of Old City on Penn’s Landing by the Delaware River and eventually arriving near the green and leafy pathways of the Fairmount Water Works, located on the Schuylkill River.

Along the route, athletes can refuel at hydration stations and get cheered on by thousands watching the action.
