The Team LIVESTRONG Philly Challenge is returning to Blue Bell, Pennsylvania for the ninth year on August 17, 2014. With just two months to go, right now is the right time to register. Use discount code PHILLY40 before July 1, you’ll receive 40% off the cost of registration! When you run or ride with Team LIVESTRONG, you’re supporting people affected by cancer right now.
People like Scott Joy, an 11-year cancer survivor, who will ride this year in memory of his wife, Judy. Judy passed on November 12, 2013 after her battle with blood cancer. Survivorship now has an entirely new meaning for Scott and his four children, who are all eager to participate in the Philly event this year. “While I’d never talk the whole family into riding a century—or even 45 miles—with me, we can all come together and honor Judy on this new course,” Scott said.
This year’s new course features a 20 mile and a 50 mile ride through the rolling, tree-lined country roads of the picturesque Pennsylvania landscape. Those looking to push themselves physically have the opportunity to ride either course as many times as they like, fully supported by SAG and aid stations. The 5k and 10k running events will take place before the ride, skirting the perimeter of Montgomery County Community college and traveling through the quiet streets of Blue Bell. Runners will have the chance to enjoy breakfast at the venue and refuel for the ride if they plan on doing both events.
After you cross the finish line, you can head back out on the course for another loop, or join your team and spectators for a fantastic post-challenge party with food, drinks, entertainment, games for kids, local vendors and sponsor exhibits.
The Philly Challenge is not just about getting a morning workout. This is an opportunity for people of all ages and fitness levels to come together in camaraderie, community support and physical achievement. Don’t forget, there is strength in numbers. See you at the starting line!
