Runners follow an out-and-back course through the city and over the Schuylkill River at the Philadelphia Half Marathon, which starts with the full marathon on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway near the Philadelphia Museum of Art. From there, the course unfolds first through downtown and the Old City, taking runners past the Liberty Bell and historic City Hall on the way toward the stretch along the Delaware River. Once they make their way down the riverfront, it’s back into the city for a run past Independence Hall and then toward Fairmount Park, before heading in to the finish line.
