In just over 26 hours, all 5,000 participant slots were filled -- which is 2,000 more runners than last year's inaugural Phillies Charities 5K race. This year's 3.1 mile run will take place on Saturday, March 31, 2012 at Citizens Bank Park.
"The enthusiasm for the Phillies Charities 5K continues to grow, and we look forward to seeing our fans at the starting line in just a few short weeks," said Mary Ann Gettis, Phillies Race Manager.
