Getting Ready for The Broad Street Run

From Central High School to the Philadelphia Navy Yard the 32nd Annual Broad Street Run will be one of the fastest 10 Mile courses in the country. The elevation profile shows that the course takes you on a 307 foot drop from start to finish


This is my favorite race and although I missed it last year, I’ve committed this year and actually managed to register on the first day. The race has since closed registration as they capped the number of participants at 30,000.

To help prepare, I’ve created a training calendar specifically for this event. The training calendar presents a ten week program design specifically for the beginner runner. The calendar begins on February 21st and incorporates strength training and stretching in addition to road miles.
