New for 2017 – Join Stroke Challenge in Philadelphia.

This Rock ‘n’ Roll ½ marathon is a perennial favorite and it’s easy to see why.  Whether you’re using this flat and fast course to go for a personal best or are there to enjoy the bands, music and entertainment along the course, you won’t want to miss this event.

The National Stroke Association is the official charity partner for Transamerica’s Tomorrow Chaser program at the AACR Rock ‘n Roll Philadelphia 1/2.  Former professional athlete, mother of four  and stroke survivor Belinda Halloran will start at the back of the race and attempt to pass as many people as possible over the next 13.1 miles. For each person she catches, Transamerica will donate $1 to the National Stroke Association. Can you stay in front of this speedy mom?

Don’t miss the opportunity to earn some serious race medal bling at this event! Not only will you earn a finisher medal, but you’ll also earn a special charity runner medal when you join the Stroke Challenge team. Spots are limited – get started today.
