Penn Relays 5K, presented by Toyota

The Penn Relays is excited to announce the 2nd Annual Penn Relays 5K presented by Toyota on Saturday, October 22, a scenic, competitive run through Penn Park that will start and finish on the track of historic Franklin Field. The Penn Relays and the local Tri-State Toyota Dealers welcome runners of all levels, as the event will feature a 5K and a One-Mile Fun Run.

Not participating in the Fun Run? Join our newly inaugurated Penn President Liz Magill at 8 a.m., at 38th and Locust Walk (outside of Huntsman Hall) for a celebratory procession and dog walk (with her pup, Olive), as they parade across campus to Franklin Field for the Penn Relays 5K. The walk is open to the Penn community.

The competitive 5K will follow at 8:30 a.m., with President Magill presiding as this year’s ceremonial starter. The race will begin in Franklin Field, running through scenic Penn Park with the Philadelphia skyline in the background, and ending at the Penn Relays finish line in Franklin Field.

A post-event party in Franklin Field will feature an awards ceremony as well as food, beverages, music, sponsor and vendor tents, giveaways, and more.
