PWH 17 600x315

Dear Runners,

It came to our attention over the last several days that the City of Philadelphia has placed a moratorium on any new events taking place along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway until a feasibility study has been completed to review the impact of major events on residents, businesses and traffic. This unfortunate news after tirelessly working toward a solution the past three weeks, along with the information we had that several events objected to this event taking place at all, are a major disappointment to us and of course to you as the female competitor.

At this time we are actively looking at other options for this event from new locations to changing the date, and we will certainly communicate these updates to you in the very near future.

Please see this City of Philadelphia Letter from their Special Events Department regarding this decision.
