37th Annual Blossom Philadelphia 5K Night Race

I was so excited when I was contacted about participating in the Blossom Philadelphia 5K Night Race taking place on Thursday, May 25, 2017.  It’ll be my first time attending and it looks like a really fun event supporting a wonderful organization – Blossom Philadelphia – formerly known as United Cerebral Palsy of Philadelphia.

 Here are 5 reasons why the 5K Night Race should be on your radar:

  1. You’re supporting a very worthy cause – Blossom Philadelphia
  2. You’ll get to run past the illuminated Boathouse Row and the Schuylkill River at night
  3. You can enjoy amazing food from local food trucks at the After Party
  4. You can create a team and participate with family and friends
  5. You have the chance to win a FREE race entry to the 5K!

The Race

The 5k Night Race is a USATF Certified Course that starts in front of the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and goes out and back on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.  5k registration includes a closed, timed course, a t-shirt (with the option to upgrade) and a well-stocked water stop and food tent before and after the race.  There is an also an option to participate in the 2K Night Walk.  You can register the following ways:

  • 5K Night Race ($35)

The After Party

So what’s the deal with the After Party?  It takes place in the parking lot of Eakins Oval, right in front of the Art Museum.  You can enjoy a beer or root beer from Victory Brewing Company and six of Philly’s finest food trucks will be there:

  • Baby Blues BBQ
  • Sweet Box Cupcakes
  • Taco Mondo
  • The Cow and The Curd
  • The Tot Cart
  • Undrgrnd Donuts

The After Party Wrist Band includes four tabs for a beer/beverage, main course, appetizer and sweet treat!  I don’t think I’ve ever ate this well after a race after party, especially for a 5K – so I’m excited to eat as much as I can post-race!

Even if you don’t want to run or walk, you can attend just the After Party and register for only $30.

Running for a Great Cause

Formerly known as United Cerebral Palsy of Philadelphia, Blossom Philadelphia has been changing the lives of children and adults with disabilities for over 70 years.

Our story began by supporting individuals with cerebral palsy, but has now grown to include adults and children with autism, Down syndrome, head trauma or any condition that limits a person’s ability to function independently. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities by increasing independence, employment and participation in community life, always emphasizing respect and dignity. Your support will help Blossom Philadelphia continue this important mission in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties.

Here’s where you can donate to Blossom Philadelphia to show your support!
