Run in the 2011 Philadelphia Marathon and Help the Men in Blue!

Ready, Willing & Able

Run in the 2011 Philadelphia Marathon (November 19-20, 2011) and you will receive guaranteed entry to one of three race events -- while you raise funds to help break the cycles of homelessness in our city. For the first time this year, Ready, Willing & Able is an official charity partner of the Philadelphia Marathon.

Secure your spot on the Ready, Willing & Able team TODAY by contacting Mark Atwood by email at matwood@doe.org or by phone at (215) 732-3781.


Provide you guaranteed entry to the 2011 Philadelphia Marathon in any of the three events:

  • Full marathon (26.2 miles): Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 7:00 AM
  • Half Marathon (13.1 miles): Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 7:00 AM
  • Rothman Institute 8K (5 miles): Saturday, November 19, 2011 @ 7:30 AM

Provide you with information and resources to outreach to friends and family about Ready, Willing & Able's mission and program

Host a pep rally for all runners -- running for Ready, Willing & Able -- so you can meet and greet the "men in blue" who will benefit from your support

The Men in Blue THANK YOU for being READY, WILLING & ABLE! Good luck and have fun, Philadelphia Marathon Runners!
