The Northeast Philly 5 Mile Run was inspired from an idea by State Reprsentative Dennis M O'Brien who saw this race event as a way to demonstrate community spirit, promote the importance of being physically fit and also help in raising funds for local youth sports clubs  in  Northeast Philadelphia.  The Belmont Plateau Cross Country Hall of Fame (formerly Philadelphia Athletic Chairites) helped start the race 13 years ago and we are proucd or our relationship with Dennis O'Brien and the Norteast Philly Youth Alliance.  We will contnue to lend support with registration and finish line manageent of the 5 Mile Run and 2 Mile Walk.




 The Course :  Starting inside the Northeast Philadelphia Airport, runners will follow the black macadam path (mostly flat with some rolling hills) for 2.5 miles (almost up to the Flyers Skate Zone property) before turning around and retracing their course back to the finish line in the Northeast Philadelphia Airport.  The 2 Mile walk will start and finish in the same area as the 5 Mile, but will go out 1 mile and return 1 mile to the  finish line inside the Airport.
