They say necessity is the mother of invention and it is certainly the mother of the ODDyssey. We have been running in Philadelphia for years, and our training team has pushed scores of Philadelphians to conquer the Broad Street Run. Without exception, our teammates and friends have always asked one question upon crossing the finish line. .
When can I run a half marathon?
Well Philadelphia, here it is. Perfectly timed to transition you from the 10 mile Broad Street Run into your first or four hundredth half marathon, the ODDyssey is the race you have been clamoring for. But, it is so much more than that.
The ODDyssey remembers that running is fun. Though a serious race, this half marathon is coupled with optional twists throughout the course including costume contests and unique challenges to make it a race you will never forget. The course takes in the beauty of Fairmount Park, beginning on the Memorial Hall Green and winding around the tranquil Belmont Plateau before touring East Park and the stunning Schuylkill River Loop . Runners will finish back at Memorial Hall for a post race bash. This race has quickly become a favorite staple in the Philadelphia running community.
