2016 Philadelphia Marathon
The Philadelphia Marathon has become a pretty well known race since their first event in 1994. What started as a small road race of just 1,500 participants has since become one of the top-10 largest marathons in the country. The beautiful and scenic course is well now for all of the historic landmarks and it’s flat course that many runners set their PR’s on. On top of that you have the nice autumn weather and the astonishing mass of spectators. The spectators are always eager to cheer on runners and the course is lined up with plenty of fluid stations. Race Weekend 2016 features the Philadelphia Marathon on Sunday, November 20; the Half Marathon, and Kids Fun Run on Saturday, November 19; and a free two-day Health & Fitness Expo on Friday, November 18 and Saturday, November 19.

Philadelphia Marathon Coupons
Coupons always make a race better. To be fair the tierred pricing most running events use are already a form of a coupon. The race offers you a lower entry fee for signing up sooner. So if you know you are going to participate then it is best to sign up right away (and then do not mention to your significant other you have signed up until the event gets closer.)
