2010 Philadelphia Marathon Route

The 2010 Philadelphia Marathon starts tomorrow morning at 7 am.  You can download a map of the race route right here, but the race organizers have set up designated "cheer zones" where you'll be able to gather with others and watch the race. The best ones that I think are along the starting and finishing stretches of the race. The race essentially begins going up Arch street and finishes coming down Chestnut. There are number of really good cheer zones along those streets.

↵

The first is right at the corner of 4th and Arch, where the runners turn onto Arch.

↵

Then there's Arch & 16th street, about a block away from the Academy of fine arts. This is again where the runners will turn and head toward Logan square.

↵

Maybe the most dramatic spot of the race will be at 34th and Chestnut, where the runners essentially hit the home stretch. There's a lot of room there and that should be an exciting area.

↵

Right at Broad & Chestnut across from City Hall. The runners are nearing the end, you'll get a good look at whoever is going to win the race and you'll be doing at an iconic Philly location. This might be the best photo op of the course.

↵

Finally at Washington Avenue & Water street the runners will turn onto Penn's Landing, which should be a good moment as well.
