They say when a runner sees his shadow, it's an early spring! And on race day May 2, 1999, it was a picture-perfect spring day! ☀️ #TBT

Just because the date of the race moved, it doesn’t mean you have to start registration over. If you are registered for the 2020 race, you’re in and you don’t have to do anything else but show up on October 4! #BCBSR20

With the race officially postponed until October, many have asked about getting a refund if they can't make the race date. If you can't make it on October 4, you can transfer your bib to someone else to get your money back that way. And the $15 fee is waived! ⁠ ⁠ See link in bio for more info. #TransferTuesday #BCBSR20

So, the race is postponed to October 4. Look at the bright side: ✔ More time to train ✔ More time to nurse an injury preventing you from running on the original date ✔ Something to look forward to #MotivationMonday

Race organizers and the City of Philadelphia have decided to postpone the 2020 Blue Cross Broad Street Run to October 4, 2020. This decision was not taken lightly. Based on recommendations by the CDC and after consulting with the City’s Health Department, this is the best way to keep all runners, volunteers, staff, and spectators as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is an evolving situation and details are still being worked out. An FAQ has been developed to answer some of your questions (see link in bio ). In the meantime, runners can go to their user profile on runsignup.com to defer their bib to 2021 or transfer their bib, and the $15 transfer fee will be waived. Thank you for your support and understanding during this time and please stay safe.
