The Phillies kicked of Paint the Town Red Week in a big way at Citizens Bank Park on Saturday with the third annual Phillies 5k! (Phillies 5k Photos Below).
Emcee Jim Jackson welcomed the Red Phanatic, the Phillies Ballgirls, Special Guest Tommy Greene, dozens of Phillies Volunteers and staff, and over 5,000 runners. The usual sea of Phillies gear had a few extra layers this year as temperatures were in the low thirties. The new route gave runners plenty of surprises as well with bands like Cheers and the Whiz Kids, Tommy Greene and Red Phanatic each welcoming runners at each miler marker. The race is an annual tradition that benefits Phillies Charities and helps ring in the new season.
