About the Run/Walk

  • The Stride for Science Run/Walk benefits SBM’s Proven Science—Better Health Giving Campaign. 100% of the proceeds go to SBM’s Science Communication Fund which helps scientists communicate their work to the public using resources like our Sci Comm Toolkit and publishing Healthy Living Articles.

  • Both runners and walkers are encouraged to sign up

  • The Run/Walk is a 5k along Kelly Drive in Fairmount Park, one of Philly's most popular running and biking destinations. Enjoy beautiful scenery along the Schuylkill River, including Boathouse Row which will be spectacularly lit up during the evening Run/Walk. For a shorter route, both runners and walkers are welcome to turn around at the Gerard Avenue Bridge for an approximately one mile lap. View the full route here.
