The Reading Fightin Phils have announced there will be an In-Game Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K presented by Penn State Health St. Joseph, Corps Fitness, IM ABLE Foundation and A Running Start on Saturday, April 15th. Teams of four can compete in their choice of a marathon, half marathon or 10K run, and run the race during the Fightins game!

The race is a relay style format; each member of the team will run one lap at a time. The course will begin inside the stadium where participants’ friends and family can watch them compete, as the course circles the stadium including high on the center-field hill for a unique view of the game while the participants run, and through the Deck Picnic Area in left field where friends and family can be seated in close proximity to the runners. When the runner returns to the start/finish area, they will “tag” one of their teammates, who will complete the next lap around the ballpark. This team relay format will continue until the team has completed their chosen race length. The course is approximately a half mile each lap.

Here is a breakdown of how each marathon will take place:

Team Marathon:

12:15 p.m.: Marathon Starts (Check in 11:15 am)

Starts with one team runner, on the field at 12:15.

The other three runners are waiting in the team rest area.

Team Half Marathon:

1:15 p.m.: Half Marathon Starts (Check in 12:15 pm)

Starts with one team runner, on the field at 1:15.

The other three runners are waiting in the team rest area.

Team 10K:

1:45 p.m.: 10K Starts (Check in 12:145 pm)

Starts with one team runner, on the field at 1:45.

Other three runners are waiting in the “pits” area (left field batting tunnel).

The other three runners are waiting in the team rest area.

All team packages will include the following for the four runners: four runner bibs, four t-shirts, four all-you-can-eat deck buffet passes, four beer vouchers (or beverage vouchers if under 21) and Fightins game tickets for each participant. The team will receive 16 additional tickets for family and friends to attend the game, who can cheer them on as they run by during the game.

There are multiple packages available. Those packages are:


Full Marathon with 20 Deck Picnic Tickets – $500 ($125/runner)

Recognize a sponsor, or just announce your fun team name as the “sponsor”.

Half Marathon with 20 General Admission Tickets – $200 ($50/runner)

10K with 20 General Admission Tickets – $180 ($45/runner)

With both the Ultimate Package and the Base Package, additional Deck Picnic Tickets, and/or general admission tickets can also be purchased AT A SPECIAL DISCOUNTED RATE if there are more than 16 friends and family that want to be there to cheer their participant’s team on. Additional Deck Picnic Tickets are available at a discounted rate of $18 (Includes game ticket, all-you-can-eat buffet, and reserved picnic table seating with your group). Additional general admission tickets are available at a discounted rate of $5.

The marathon will begin at 12:15 p.m. while the half marathon will begin at 1:15 p.m. and the 10K will begin at 1:45 p.m. The Fightins game that day is at 2:05 p.m., so all the races will finish during the Fightins game, allowing the participants to enjoy the remainder of the game with their friends and family, who cheered them on during the race.

There will be a Post-Game Award Ceremony on the field immediately following the Fightins game to honor the top finishers in each race category. There will be awards for:

· First, second and third place teams overall in the marathon, half marathon, and 10K (12 teams honored)
