2024 Broad Street Run: Course details, road closures, SEPTA detours and everything else you need to know

The Broad Street Run returns to Philadelphia on Sunday with 40,000 runners ready to hit the street beginning at 7:30 a.m.

The nation's largest 10-mile road race, now in its 45th year, will be at full capacity for the first time since 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic heavily impacted registration for the event over the last several years. Since the race was held virtually in 2020, there has been a steady climb of participants — from 17,000 in 2021 to 27,000 in 2022 to 36,000 last year. Organizers had to institute a lottery system this year because more than 45,000 people had registered to participate.

This year's race will mark a full return to tradition. The course will conclude at the Navy Yard after several years of construction required race operators to use alternate finish lines. The race also makes its return to the first Sunday in May after it had been moved to the last Sunday of April last year. The 7:30 a.m. start time on Sunday is meant to accommodate access to the area for an evening Phillies game.

Runners and spectators can text "RUNPHL" to 888777 to receive public safety updates and weather advisories during the race.
