We collaborate closely with businesses and organizations that share a love for Philadelphia and who are interested in connecting with the region’s running community. We prioritize quality over quantity and are most excited when working with partners who want to create meaningful value for our runners. We are very excited and fortunate to be working with the following partners:
Philadelphia Runner is the spiritual home of the Philadelphia running community and a strong supporter of The Philly 10K. Philadelphia Runner was instrumental in getting the race started and continues to support the race through a deep partnership.
Founded in 2004, Philadelphia Runner is the only store in the city that specializes in outfitting runners. Through a robust community outreach presence, Philadelphia Runner has supported hundreds of causes throughout the city and continues to work tirelessly to promote the vibrancy of the running scene.
Our first run, like many of us in the city, began at Philadelphia Runner.
We are very excited to have Diadora on board this year as the official footwear and apparel sponsor of The Philly 10K. Diadora will be launching a new line of running footwear in the fall with a focus on supporting local running shops in cities across the country. Their passion for supporting local businesses as well as a quality product line (they still make many of their shoes at their factory in Italy) made them a perfect fit for us.
Diadora will be supporting all aspects of The Philly 10K but will be especially present at the Diadora Kickoff Party at Philadelphia Brewing Company. We are working closely with them to create the most unique bib pick up experience in the region and are very excited to develop a long term partnership with such an innovative and passionate group of people.
Our newest partner is the oldest bank in Philadelphia, with over 160 years of supporting the region's financial needs. We know many of the people behind the scenes at Beneficial and their support of The Philly 10K came naturally out of a shared passion for Philadelphia and the people and businesses that make up our hometown.
Philadelphia Runner and Shake Shack have been close partners since Shake Shack opened in Center City back in 2012. They have supported The Philly 10K since our inaugural run in 2014. Each year Shake Shack works with a local food vendor to create exotic custard blends for all runners on race day.
This year, Shake Shack will be working with Federal Donuts again to create a delicious blend of post race custard for every runner.
The East Passyunk ACME was one of the first supporters of The Philly 10K when we launched in 2014. Located at the inaugural start line on East Passyunk and Reed, ACME generously gave us their parking lot space and water and bananas for all runners. Three years later and they still generously and enthusiastically provide all of the course water and bananas (and they still let us park our big race day trucks out back). You’ll also notice three different ACME locations on the course that all support their local communities and help provide hundreds of thousands of Philadelphians with quality groceries and service each year.
Cozen O'Connor, is an anchor of the Philly community serving the legal needs of thousands of Philadelphians (and beyond) each year. Founded in 1970, Cozen O'Connor has grown over the last 47 years into an international, full service firm with more than 600 lawyers in 24 offices. They are proudly based in Philadelphia and many of their clients and lawyers are active members of the Philadelphia running community.
Philadelphia Brewing Co.
We connected with Philadelphia Brewing Company shortly after we began planning the first Philly 10K and the have been a strong partner ever since. PBC is passionate about Philadelphia and has long supported various efforts by running groups around the city. We are fortunate to work closely with Bill and Nancy Barton, owners of PBC, and very much enjoy our many meetings at their brewery which coincidentally take place in their upstairs tasting room
It's good to have close friends. PDQ is a fast casual concept built around quality chicken, fresh salads and sandwiches with locations in Sicklerville and Cherry Hill. The franchises are owned by Philly 10K co-owner Steve Siegfried and are graciously supporting all runners with bottled water and apple slices on race morning (look for them as you cross the finish line!). Next time you are in South Jersey, stop by and check them out (and be on the lookout for more locations in the Philly area in the near future!)
