It was a near picture-perfect day for more than 36,000 finishers for the 39th annual Blue Cross® Broad Street Run on Sunday, May 6. The nation’s largest 10-miler is one of Philadelphia’s most beloved springtime events and takes runners from north Philadelphia to the Navy Yard — passing iconic landmarks such as Temple University, City Hall, the Academy of Fine Arts, and the Sports Complex.
As the presenting sponsor of the race for the past 22 years, Independence Blue Cross is proud of the commitment to health by the runners, which included more than 12,000 Independence Blue Cross members.
We congratulate the winners, including Daniel Kemoi, who finished first among the men’s division with a time of 45:44, and Sophy Jepchirchir, who finished first among women with a time of 55:44. In addition, Tony Nogueria captured the men’s wheelchair title with a time of 33:20, and Emelia Perry won the women’s wheelchair division finishing in 1:08:38.
This year, more than 140 of our associate runners, known as the Blue Streaks — one of the largest corporate running teams in the city — finished strong! Check out our Blue Streak stories from the Run media partners featured on NBC10 and Telemundo 62.
