Be a part of the first ever Gritty 5k! For this Gritty-themed 5k, fans are encouraged to don their best orange and furry regalia as they run from the Wells Fargo Center, travel through the Navy Yard, and finish outside of Xfinity Live!
The Gritty 5k will feature a course with the full mascot treatment, including Gritty-styled "rest" and "water" stops, as well as on-route decor featuring Gritty's favorite tricks, gags, and gadgets. At the finish line, the best-dressed runners will be awarded special prizes in one-of-a-kind categories such as "best in fur".
Gritty's party doesn't stop at the finish line. Fans and participants can enjoy a free Flyers Fan Fest highlighted by the Flyers Community Caravan, hockey games, and inflatables into the afternoon. All registered participants will receive a race t-shirt, a participant medal, and more.
Registration for the race opens at 2:00 PM August 29. Funds raised from the Gritty 5K benefit Flyers Charities to help support a multitude of worthy non-profits across the Greater Philadelphia Region.
