Next Sunday, May 5, 8:30, is the 34th annual Blue Cross Broad Street Run, the nation’s largest ten mile race. Weather forecast looks positive (not too warm, not raining). Even though riding the subway is free for those wearing race bibs, be sure to leave plenty of time, particularly if you’re coming from Center City or north. Around 7 to 7:30, just about every subway will be full before it gets to those areas.
After the race, everyone is invited to the annual post-race party at noted South Philadelphia resident Anthony Locicero’s house (3139 S. 20th St., about 1.5 miles away from the finish). Plenty of food and beverages will be served.
