Fairmount Park Conservancy exists to champion Philadelphia’s parks. We lead capital and historic preservation projects, foster neighborhood park stewardship, attract and leverage resources, and develop innovative programs throughout the 10,200 acres that include Fairmount Park and more than 100 neighborhood parks around the city. Philadelphia has one of the largest urban park systems in the world which is home to some of our region’s most famous attractions. Our work in Philadelphia’s parks strives to enhance the quality of life and stimulate economic development of the Greater Philadelphia Region.
Questions? Please contact Sara so you can be kept up to date of the latest details or for help with registration.
Will I have to run the race with the Fairmount Park Conservancy team?
Nope! You will show up to race day, find your corral and run as you would ordinarily.
What if I'm new to running?
We LOVE having newer runners on our team! You are more than welcome to join us and we'll have a blast showing you the wonderful running trails of Fairmount Park (beyond Kelly Drive and MLK Drive).
What if I can't raise the $475?
When you register for our team, you commit to raising the $475 by June 15th. If you are unable to raise it by June 15th, the credit card you used to register will be charged for whatever remains. If an extinuating circumstance comes up, you can contact Sara and she can help you out.
What does a $50-level membership to the Conservancy get me?
