I want to know if the 2013 Philadelphia half-marathon is going to be run within the full marathon… But I cannot see anything online about registration… Even re: the 8k!


I ran the marathon last year and the half was run within the full marathon… the course splits at the halfway point, and the half marathon race ends while the full marathon continues
