Join the Team and Race to End Lupus in Philadelphia

Rock 'n' Roll Philadelphia 2021

Join the Lupus Foundation of America's Rock 'n' Roll Philadelphia team and Make Your Miles Matter in the fight against lupus.

Philadelphia Half Marathon, 7.6K & 5K 

Team Make Your Mark is heading back to the east coast in 2021 for the Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon, 7.6K & 5K race. After taking a break in 2020 due to COVID-19, we are excited to head back to the city of brotherly love. 

The Half Marathon route reigns as one of the country’s fastest and flattest and will take you down Ben Franklin Parkway, through downtown Philly, and past such landmarks as City Hall, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the historic boathouses on Kelly Drive. 

Whether you take on the Half Marathon, 7.6K or 5K race, your miles are about so much more. They are about solving the mystery of lupus, one of the world's cruelest, most unpredictable, and devastating diseases. They are about coming together as a community and giving a voice to those who suffer from its impact. They are about making your miles matter!

Why should I join?

Whether you have experience with endurance event or are looking to start and push yourself to something greater, you can combine this with helping those with lupus.

The one thing that we hear from our participants is how rewarding being a part of Team Make Your Mark is. From the Team Event pre-race dinners and tributes to the post-race euphoria, Team Make Your Mark is a way to take an event that could simply be your participation or a way to make a personal goal into a reality and to turn it into something personal, charitable, and greater than yourself.

I thought about the Lupus Foundation of America almost every time I ran. Even if I was really tired, there would be times when it was almost 90 degrees outside and I'm sitting under a tree during my run relaxing, and I'm like, ‘All right, keep going. You're doing this for a bigger cause.
