Get Your Rear In Gear 5K Run/Walk

Sunday, July 19, 2020
7:30am to 10:30am

As with many major events scheduled within this challenging time of escalating concerns around COVID 19, Get Your Rear in Gear Philadelphia has postponed the 12th annual colon cancer awareness event from Sunday, March 22, 2020, to Sunday, July 19, 2020 at 7 am. 

This move was made in collaboration with our expert medical partners to help ensure the safety and well-being of our participants.  It is a strategic choice to preserve the event and move it to the first available date on the calendar of the City of Philadelphia. 

All funds raised thus far from registrations, donations and sponsorships will be transferred to the rescheduled date of July 19 for our 5K Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run. We sincerely hope you will be able to join us. Thank you for your support, patience and understanding.
