About the Race

5K USATF certified run starts at 8:30 AM

2 mile walk starts at 8:25 AM

Kids Fun Run starts at 9 AM

The Great Eastern State Breakout USATF certified 5K is a major fundraiser for the community organization, Friends of Eastern State Penitentiary Park. This volunteer-run organization maintains the park area that surrounds the National Historic Landmark, Eastern State Penitentiary but receives no funding from the Penitentiary. The race winds through Philadelphia's Fairmount neighborhood, bringing together neighbors and friends for a fun day out. The race is co-hosted by Fairmount fitness gurus, CoreFitness. 

This year, we welcome runners AND walkers AND virtual participants to join us.  The walking route will be ~2 miles and go through the Girard College campus.  Want to train with CoreFitness?  Join our Couch to Breakout 5K program, contact for more information.
