Run for PAWS in the Philadelphia Marathon


For the 4th year running, PAWS is an official Charity Partner of the Philadelphia Marathon!

Make your run even more meaningful by raising funds for the city’s most vulnerable animals. PAWS has a limited number of guaranteed entries for runners who raise funds for our lifesaving efforts ($1,000 fundraising minimum for half marathon/8K runners, $1,500 for full marathon runners).

2016 race registration is open!

To learn more and join the team, contact us at or 215-298-9680 ext. 15.


Runners for PAWS will receive:

  • One race entry code that guarantees your spot in the Philadelphia Marathon, Half Marathon, or 8K.
  • PAWS gear as thanks for your fundraising efforts (including a PAWS t-shirt, bandana, bracelet, bottle opener, and water bottle).
  • Fundraising resources to help you reach your goal (including a personalized online donation page, sample messages for supporters, and fundraising tips)
