    Want to watch the 10-mile Blue Cross Broad Street Run on Sunday, May 6 but don’t know where to stand? We have twelve of the best spots for you!

    Thanks to the Blue Cross Broad Street Run for the tips. For more race FAQs, click here.

    North Broad Street and Fisher Street (Starting line)

    Could be crowded, but it's still the iconic opening of the race.

    North Broad Street and Callowhill Street

    A good place to gather that is close to the Broad Street Line (at either Race / Vine or Spring Garden).

    North Broad Street near Temple’s campus

    Always hopping as the students come out to cheer on runners

    City Hall at Dilworth Plaza

    Center City's landmark is easy to get to on rail (Suburban Station) and subway (City Hall station). Plus, turn into a tourist and explore Center City after the runners pass by.

    South Broad Street and Walnut Street, outside The Bellevue

    Encourage a runner and then take in a little shopping!

    South Broad Street near Avenue of the Arts

    There's tons to do on Broad Street south of City Hall -- including several shows later on race day at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.

    South Broad Street and Carpenter Street

    After cheering on the runners, walk a few blocks east and pay a visit to the Italian Market.

    South Broad Street and Jackson Street

    Easy to reach on the Broad Street Line (Snyder station) and a place where the runners can use a almost-to-the-finish line boost.

    South Broad Street and Bigler Street

    Just below Marconi Plaza, where there's tons of outdoor play space. A great spot for bringing your dog to cheer on the runners. (Just make sure she's on a leash.)

    South Broad Street and Packer Avenue

    Runners are almost there at this point ... they'll need the cheers.

    South Broad Street and Pattison Avenue

    Could be crowded but a great place to gather before the end of the race!

    The race concludes at South Broad Street and Farragut Avenue in the Navy Yard where there will be bleachers available, but seating will be limited.

    Also keep in mind that all items must be in clear plastic bags in the Navy Yard and no bags or coolers will be permitted.
