Rooms are available for Philadelphia Marathon Weekend, November 18-19, 2017. The Marathon takes place on Sunday, November 19, while the Half-Marathon, 8K Races, and Kids’ Fun Runs take place the day before, on Saturday, November 18.

The Philadelphia Marathon is always a great event. It is consistently ranked as one of the Top 10 races in the country.   The temperature is generally ideal for runners in Philadelphia in November. The course is mostly flat and scenic. Runners will pass historic landmarks, and go through urban neighborhoods, and along Philadelphia’s picturesque waterfronts. The atmosphere surrounding the events are terrific, too, thanks to our awesome fans who come out in force to support the racers. Philly’s sports fans are always enthusiastic. Their love for the racers is evident as the fans line the course to cheer and show their support. If you are not running in the Marathon this year, consider coming to Philadelphia to experience this awesome atmosphere.

In addition to the races, there is a Health and Fitness Expo on Friday and Saturday, November 17 and 18, 2017.  It is held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in the heart of downtown Philadelphia. The Expo has vendors who showcase the newest running apparel, shoes and accessories. They also distribute product samples, and offer tips on health and fitness. This is also the place to purchase official 2017 AACR  (American Association For Cancer Research) Philadelphia Marathon merchandise. The Expo is free and open to the general public.

We have good news for out-of-town runners and fans. A Bed and Breakfast Connection can help you find an affordable accommodation that is convenient  to the Start and Finish Lines. In fact, we still have properties that are within walking distance! We can offer you great options in the desirable Art Museum and Historic Area neighborhoods.
