Team Sjögren's Philadelphia Half Marathon & 7.6K!

September 15, 2019

We’re looking for runners or walkers to join our Team Sjögren’s Training Program for the Rock ‘n’ Roll series Philadelphia Half Marathon and 7.6K race.  Follow our program and we will prepare you to WALK or RUN either the Half Marathon (13.1 miles) or their inaugural 7.6K (4.72 miles) race on Sunday, September 15, 2019 in Philadelphia! 

The SSF has a limited number of spots for this epic fall event and we hope you’ll be one of them! By taking part, you will get to enjoy the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series oldest event in historic Philadelphia as we participate alongside 20,000 other walkers/runners from all over the world!

Both walker friendly courses take you on a city tour through beautiful Philadelphia. Those individuals completing the Half Marathon will traverse 13.1 miles and those who decided to run or walk the 7.6K will cover 4.72 miles and be one of the first to rock an all new distance in this inaugural race. Whichever you choose, you will be cheered on by bands, cheerleaders and supportive spectators throughout the route!  

As a Team Sjögren’s member, you will receive:

  • • World-class training from our Team Trainer
  • • Leadership and mentorship from past runners and SSF staff
  • • Hotel room accommodations in Philadelphia
  • • Airfare reimbursement
  • • Opportunity to join a team of those wanting to make a difference
  • • And much much more

The best part, is that even if you have never ran or walked such a distance, the staff and our team trainer will help guide you through the entire process and ensure you are ready to participate in September!   Our team is always full of walkers and runners – so don’t fret if you aren’t a runner – Team Sjögren’s was designed for you! Our plan takes people from the couch to the course!
