Join Philadelphia's fastest growing race and one of the nation's largest charity events. As the first race to accompany the famous March of Dimes March for Babies, the Run for Babies 5K & 10K have quickly grown in popularity due to its support from a dedicated race committee and passionate community of runners and volunteers.

The March of Dimes holds the nation's premier walking event, the March for Babies. In 2011, we added a 5K run that enhances and complements the walk. In 2013 we featured our new 10K distance! It’s a unique campaign that blends the benefits of physical activity, community involvement and personal giving.
Imagine a world without infant mortality, birth defects and preterm births. March of Dimes stands for all babies and works every day to tackle the serious health issues facing babies before and after they are born. Through our efforts in funding the development of the polio vaccine, we are the only organization to have completely solved a serious health problem like this in the United States. And we are primed to solve problems for this generation’s babies.
