Philadelphia Half and Full Marathon 2018

Make your miles count for more than just your personal victory, but a victory over cancer by running with DetermiNation and raising funds to help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle! All athletes receive the following rock-star treatment:

  • Guaranteed race entry
  • Professional coaching led by our expert volunteer coaching staff. Includes a personalized training plan, weekly group runs, running clinics and more
  • A personal fundraising mentor who will help you surpass your fundraising goals by developing a personalized strategy unique to you and the miles you’re dedicating to the fight against cancer 
  • Beginning in late July, weekly group runs and water stations starting at Lloyd Hall (1 Boathouse Row). All paces and non-DNation athletes are welcome!
  • An inspiring (and delicious) pre-race dinner on Friday November 16 to celebrate your accomplishments as a DetermiNator!
  • A race-day VIP DetermiNation tent at the start/finish of the course for you and your family to enjoy with gear check, food, water, and more!

Your registration with DetermiNation is also your registration in the race itself. The individual fundraising minimum for 2018 is $750. Each athlete must fully commit to their fundraising goal by recommitting on your fundraising dashboard before they will be registered in the event.

CLICK HERE for Instructions to help you Recommit to your fundraising minimum! 

 You must Recommit by October 21st in order to fully secure your race bib, but you have until December 2 to meet your fundraising minimum. 


 Check out our Fundraising 101 and Resources to help you hit your fundraising goal.

Make fundraising easier by forming a team! Team minimum is an average of $750 per athlete and team fundraising supersedes individual fundraising! Please read the race registration waiver on the next page carefully.

If you have secured your own race bib for this year’s race = "I have secured my own race bib" when registering- you will not have a fundraising minimum and you do not need to Recommit.

Volunteer for the American Cancer Society at the Philadelphia Marathon Race Weekend! Volunteer Opportunities will be posted in July!
