The Wizard Run Returns to Philadelphia on December 9thPHILADELPHIA, PA – The Wizard Run is returning to Philadelphia for the first time since 2019, bringing magic-loving people together in an inclusive and lively manner. On December 9th at 9:30 a.m., South Philadelphia’s Navy Yard will be filled with wizards and witches.

Registration for the event is still open, and participants can pick the color of their custom race t-shirt, which is offered in four colors - blue, red, yellow, and green. Upon race day, they will also receive a custom wizard wand, a custom wizard-themed medal, and a butterscotch cream soda from Flying Cauldron. This year’s event will feature live audio streaming technology for the first time ever at a live Wizard Run event, providing participants with access to curated playlists of magic-themed music and tuning into the wizard emcee as they run.

The Wizard Run offers two distances - a 5K and a one-mile Fun Run - welcoming all experience levels, ages and gender identities. Costumes are highly encouraged during the event. Afterward, The Cauldron Philly will host an after-party as The Wizard Run’s 2023 title sponsor.

“We want to make sure that the relaunch of the in-person event in Philly exceeds everyone's expectations," said Ian Campbell, Partner at Run The Day. “We’ve put together some unique and memorable race day features for our participants, so make sure to come check it out!”

In addition to the live event in Philadelphia on December 9th, virtual participants are invited to run, jog or walk on their own road or treadmill from any location they choose. Virtual participants will be rewarded with a custom finishers medal, wand, and t-shirt in their choice of color after completing the virtual race.
