The half marathon is the most popular race distance in the United States, according to Running USA, with a record-high 1.85 million half marathon finishers in the country last year.

The distance is also popular in Philadelphia, with thousands of runners racing the ODDyssey Half Marathon, Rock 'n' Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon and Philadelphia Half Marathon each year. Those races take place in June, September and November, respectively.

Love Run race weekend will begin with a kick-off party on March 28. The race expo will run from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on March 29.

Race organizers say the finish line festival will include a beer garden, live music, a coffee and hot chocolate bar and other refreshments.
