>> UPDATE: APRIL 5TH: I just received a new discount code from the Electric Run folks. Use the code COLORRUN (the two races are cousins—how cute!) to get 10 percent off the entry fee. It should work until April 10th. Good luck!
Well, that was fast. We wanted more details about the new race on the block, and we got’ em—well, some of ‘em. A few days after we first posted about the brand-new Electric Run 5K, coming to Philly this summer, more details were finally posted. Here’s what we know (and what we still don’t):
When: July 20th, time TBD.
Registration opens: This Thursday, March 7th, at 9:05 a.m.
Cost: $45 until March 14th at 11:59 p.m.; $50 until June 13th; $55 until July 1th; $60 until the day of the event. Teams of four can register for a $5 discount during each registration phase.
Benefiting charity: ??
The website says organizers are finalizing the course map and it’ll be posted soon. Facebook offers one clue, though, in a posting from last night: “Philadelphia! We are excited to bring Electric Run to Fairmount Park!!” Ooookay, then. I’m betting it starts at the Art Museum and goes up MLK Drive, but that’s just a guess. We’ll give you an update when we’ve got it.
Once registration opens, you’ll be able to sign up here. The first 50 people will get free LED shutter shades to wear on race day. Use the promo code FACEBOOK5 to get $5 off. The code will work through Saturday.
