The Super Run is a national series of 5k running events that partners with non-profit organizations to put on superhero themed events to help raise funds and awareness for charity. The Super Run in Philadelphia had over 1200 participants at its 3rd annual run this weekend.  At  The Super Run Philly you can find every super hero imaginable, zumba workouts before the race, great photo ops, an amazing DJ spinning all your super-favorites, local running groups and even a super hero you would likely only find in Philadelphia, WingMan!  The Philadelphia race benefited  the American Association for Cancer Research, Ainsely’s Angels and Cancer to 5k and took place at the beautiful Philadelphia Navy Yard. Here are some photos from the day.

The Super Run is kid friendly and also has a walk for those that want to get in on the fun but don’t like to run.  For more information and on The Super Run and to see how you can get involved as a runner, sponsor or volunteer check them out here.
