"The course looks the same for the first 9 miles, but then most of the loop around Belmont Plateau has been eliminated (too bad, the stretch through the Japanese Gardens was always one of the nicer parts of the course). Runners won't even go as far as Memorial Hall, but make a quick loop around Landsdowne & Sweet Briar then down to West River Dr., where they'll head NORTH to a turnaround before heading South toward the Museum. At that point they'll bear RIGHT onto the BF Pkwy. and make another TA before heading North on the Pkwy. & Kelly Dr. In another swtich, this year they'll run on the RIGHT hand side of the road on the out & back section (which I think means the overpass near Wissahickon will be encountered at 18.5 rather than on the return at 21.5 as in the past. The TA in Manayunk looks to be about the same."<br><br><a href="" target="_blank"></a>
