About This Activity

Thank you for your interest in participating in the inaugural Philadelphia OUCH! Race.  Online registration for this event has now closed.  You are still welcome to register at our Health and Fitness Expo or on site the day of the race.

The health and fitness expo will be held at The Pennsylvania Convention Center Room 201A-B from 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.

On site registration will take place at Memorial Hall (Please Touch Museum) on Sunday 8/24 from 6:00 a.m. - 6:40 a.m.


The Philadelphia OUCH! Race is the first race of its kind.  In this “progressive race”, you will get to choose from three distances – 5k, 10k and 15k while you walk or run.

The courses will take runners through Fairmount Park.  The 15k option will take runners along the scenic West River Drive.  A family-friendly 1-mile “Boo-Boo Race” geared toward families and children under the age of 12 will also be held. 

This exciting event will raise funds to support the mission of the Bates-Jensen Wound Reach Foundation and their efforts to create a world without wounds.
