Where to Park for The Rock And Roll Half Marathon

 

Attention Runners: It’s go time! Get your sneaks on your feet and don’t look back. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon meets The Ben Franklin Parkway again and kicks off fall race season in Philadelphia.

The Lowdown:

On Sat., Sept. 16th at 7:30 a.m., the 5K will start off the two-day race event at Eakins Oval, while the half marathon begins on Sun., Sept. 17th at 7:30 a.m. on the Ben Franklin Parkway and N. 22nd Street.

As runners cross the finish line, they’ll be greeted with some live rock and roll and a complimentary beer at Eakins Oval.

Even though the races are different in size, they’ll both be treated to the same perks. (Psst… If you plan on competing in both races, you’ll earn an additional medal!)

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

Onto Parking:

Since Rock ‘n’ Roll runners will be taking over the streets, you can expect road closures and a shortage of street parking. Luckily, our 19th and Callowhill lot and Gateway Parking Garage are within close walking distance and offer discounted weekend rates.
