Distance Running: The Ultimate Team Sport

The Mayor's Cup was born out of a simple observation: Philadelphia has a tremendous network of local Running Clubs that challenge, motivate, and inspire allegiance from their runners.

This is the Mayor’s Cup:

Runners from every Philadelphia community – fast runners and slow runners, trail runners and road runners, ultra-runners and 5K specialists, competitors and volunteers – coming together to represent the “team” they call their own.



5 Events, one day, one start/finish line.
No individual winners; one Mayor’s Cup Champion team.

"The strength of the team is each individual member.  The strength of each member is the team."

- Phil Jackson
