The Broad Street Run Starts Today

The annual Broad Street Run begins this Sunday at 8:30 a.m. in Olney at Broad and West Fisher Avenue and warm-ups at Central High School (1700 W. Olney Ave.) and the 10-mile marathon concludes at the Philadelphia Navy Yard (4747 S. Broad St.). Marathon officials have created a new rule that requires all participants and spectators to carry their items in clear plastic bags. Free plastic bags will be provided to any spectator or participant in the marathon. On Wednesday, Mayor Nutter urged spectators to not bring any bags and said there was no specific threat directed at Philadelphia after the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, which police officials allege the suspected bombers carried explosives in a backpack, but that the city was on “heightened alert”.
