Representatives of the Blue Cross Broad Street Run have announced that it will be extending the lottery entry registration period from its original deadline of Thursday, February 13th until Saturday, February 15th at 12 noon.

“As a courtesy to our loyal running community we are determined to give them every opportunity to take part in this annual Philadelphia tradition to be held on May 4th by extending the deadline to enter the lottery.”
The Blue Cross Broad Street Run is officially America’s largest 10-mile road race. The American Cancer Society is the official charity of the Blue Cross Broad Street Run.
