Where to Park for the Rock N’Roll 1/2 Marathon & 5K

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Rock & Roll MarathonQueue up Eye of the Tiger yet again and prep those running shoes: The Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon & 5K is making yet another triumphant return to the Ben Franklin Parkway this weekend.

Here’s the scoop:

On Saturday, September 17th at 7:30 a.m., the 5K will get underway at Eakins Oval while the half marathon starts at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, September 18th at the Ben Franklin Parkway and N. 22nd Street.

Even though the races will have different distances, they’ll both be treated to the same perks. After completing the races, runners will be treated to live music and a complimentary beer at Eakins Oval. And by the way, if you plan on competing in both races, you’ll earn an additional medal!

For more information on this year’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon & 5K, check out the website here.

Here’s the thing: With multiple road closures and thousands of people expected to attend, parking might be a little tight. Luckily our 19th and Callowhill lot and Gateway Parking Garage are within close walking distance and offer discounted weekend rates. Spots will probably fill up quick, so if you can’t snag a spot at either of the locations listed below, on-street parking can also paid for using our mobile payment app, meterUP!
