Broad Street Run
The race starts at T.S. Park, in the Logan neighborhood, at the athletic fields at Central High School and goes south along Broad Street. Runners pass Temple University, City Hall, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Kimmel Center. The race finishes at the Navy Yard in South Philadelphia. Due in part to its nearly flat (actually slightly downhill) route, it has become a favorite in the running community, working to establish personal best times.
