There were more than 12,000 runners in this event, but race day didn’t feel too crowded or congested for anywhere. I credit the race organizers and plenty of helpful volunteers. The aid stations were great! They were clear on what was a Nuun drink and what was water. Some of the mid to later course aid stations had a gel pack.
The race course started at the Eakins Oval where there was plenty of space. We were in clearly marked colored corrals for a wave start. I wouldn’t have known there were so many runners if it hadn’t been for the out and back section of the course. The course was a mix of city center, museums and monuments, and alongside the Schuylkill River. There were a couple hills including a big one between 10 and 11 mile, but overall not very hilly. Post race area was spread out.
The medals were huge and specific to the race you ran, which I think is very good.

My only criticism is the food was a good bag with several dry snacks. Some had a plant protein drink, but mine didn’t have it. I really didn’t want much of the dry cookies or bar. I was really hoping for chocolate milk (or the protein drink that eluded me) and a piece of fruit.
In all, wonderful bling. I received a nice tech shirt, a mug, and a pint glass with the infamous 2020 year on it. Also, hats off to the spectators with some clever signs and lots of cheer.
