We hope you will join us for the 6th annual ODDyssey Half Marathon on June 14, 2015. We are very proud of our race which is organized by runners for runners. Registration will open January 6, 2015! We expect a quick sell out this year. So, please be prepared.
The ODDyssey was recognized as one of the top 100 road races in North America last year because of the race's dedication to the runners' experience! Philadelphia's spring half marathon, the sixth annual ODDyssey will race on June 14, 2015. It has all the bells and whistles that runners want and need like a USA Track and Field certified course, professional photographers who provide free runner photographs and cash prizes for winners. The ODDyssey even has such an advanced chip timing system that as soon as you cross the finish line you can immediately look up your results on touch screen kiosks.
But, the ODDyssey also is the most fun half marathon you will ever run. It features live music along the course and at the finish, medals with beer openers built in, and commemorative pint glasses to all finishers! Best of all, sponsors Sly Fox Brewery will provide you with a free beer at the finish line and PhilaMassages will have a platoon of masseuses providing free post race massages. There is even a costume contest with bobble-head trophies (about 35% of runners ran in costume last year) and there are optional quirky challenges along the course.
