    With more than 300 portable toilets located at the start of the Broad Street Run, officials were well equipped to handle the 40,000 runners participating in the 35th Annual Broad Street Run Sunday.

    The start of the 10-mile run began promptly at 8:30 a.m. at Broad Street and W. Fisher Avenue. The neighborhood course took runners down Broad Street from the Logan section of the city to South Philadelphia. Runner's World magazine named it one of the fastest 10-milers in the country. The first runner crossed the Philadelphia Navy Yard finish line unofficially at 47 minutes and 7 seconds.

    The winner, Mourad Marofit of Morocco, said he was "happy" after crossing the finish line and likes the people of Philadelphia and the competition.

    A strict gear check was in effect. Backpacks were not allowed, rather only clear plastic bags were permitted. SEPTA offered free service for runners wearing a bib. Runner donations and pledges support the American Cancer Society.
