The Gritty 5k is back again this year… virtually! Returning for its second occurrence, the Philadelphia Flyers and Flyers Charities are set to host a weekend-long virtual run. 

Race participants will have the option to run a 5 kilometer run in their hometowns between September 17 and 20 while wearing their best Gritty Costumes. There will even be contests such as “best in fur”, “Most exotic route” and other awards that Gritty will determine!


All participants will have an option of a race t-shirt, cooling runner’s wrap, or a future flyers game ticket added to their package.


Registration is now open at philadelphiaflyers.com/gritty5k. Funds raised from the Gritty 5k presented by Penn Medicine will be dispersed to help support a multitude of worthy non-profits across the Greater Philadelphia Region.
