On your marks, get set, go! Are you prepared for this year’s Philadelphia Marathon Weekend? The 27th Annual Philadelphia Marathon Weekend will commence on November 19th and end on the 21st. Now is the perfect time to plan and prep to utilize alternate routes this coming weekend due to road closures and parking restrictions.
Those on the road should also be aware of heightened security on the Parkway and should expect parking and traffic regulations to be strictly enforced. People in the area, whether running in the race or attending as a spectator, are asked to proceed with caution for everyone’s safety.
To avoid delays and heavy traffic in Center City, transit riders are encouraged to use the Broad Street Line, Market Frankford Line, trolleys, and Regional Rail if possible. If you are participating in any race, traveling with SEPTA is a great way to ensure you arrive at the starting line on time! Nearby stations include 15th Street on the Market-Frankford Line, City Hall on the Broad Street Line; 15th Street Station for Trolley Routes 10, 11, 13, 34, and 36; and Suburban Station for Regional Rail lines. Please be aware there will be detours on the following routes on November 20th and 21st:
