Broad Street Run

The 2017 Broad Street Run in Pictures

By on 05/09/2017

More than 40,000 competitors turned out Sunday for the 38th Annual Broad Street Run, the nation’s largest 10-miler.

Temperatures were in the 50s, with occasional drizzle and a bit of wind to contend with, but for racers it was a vast improvement over last year’s downpour. Spectators dressed warmly for the day and enthusiastically cheered on the competitors as they made their way down Broad Street to the Navy Yard.

In the men’s category, Kenyan Dominic Korir narrowly edged out countryman Philip Mburu. Askale Merachi of Ethopia scored a second Broad Street Run win in the women’s category. Among wheelchair racers, Tony Nogeira of Glen Ridge, NJ, and Chelsea Crytzer, of Parsippany, NJ, came in first in the men’s and women’s categories. (All results.)
