Scenes From Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia Race Weekend

The Rock 'n' Roll Philadelphia 5K and 10K kicked off race weekend on Saturday with the half marathon race following on Sunday.

With a sliver of the moon hanging in the sky and the famous Rocky statue off in the distance, the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia weekend kicked off Saturday morning with the 5K and 10K.

In the City of Brotherly Love, famous for its LOVE statue, there was plenty of affection for locals near the front of the 5K pack. Temple graduate Alex Izewski, 24, won the men’s 5K in 15 minutes, 48 seconds. Faye Hellman, 33, of Philadelphia won the women’s 5K in 19:01. Check out these photos from the weekend’s races.
