Please join us on November 11, 2023 for the 12th annual Run For The Stripes event, presented by Energy Management Systems, Inc & Novartis.  You can choose to participate in the 5k run or the 1 mile family fun walk.  

We are currently planning to have both an in person event at the Philadelphia Zoo and a virtual event.

Continued from prior years - You Asked, We Listened!!   We are happy to offer Run for the Stripes merchandise for purchase again this year.  We had a great response the last several years and we are continuing sales this year as well.  You can choose to purchase merchandise at the time of registration, or feel free to come back to our site at any time and visit the 'Store' (click on the tab on the left side of the registration page).  All merchandise ordered by October 1 is guaranteed to be received before November 11th.  

What is a virtual race?   You pick the location, distance, and time and it's that easy!  Once you register for the virtual event, we will mail you the event t-shirt a week before November 11, 2023.  You can choose to run or walk, in an area where you are comfortable and safe.  

Please note:  You must register by October 1 to be guaranteed to receive your t-shirt by November 11th.  Each registrant will receive a race t-shirt, if you register after October 1st, your t-shirt may arrive after the event.

Our goal is to raise awareness and funds for research for neuroendocrine (NET) cancers, a rare and hard to diagnose cancer. Proceeds from the race go to NET research to find better treatment options and hopefully a cure for this rare cancer.
