Schuylkill Navy Run

  • Hosted By: Schuylkill Navy of Philadelphia

This year's race dedicated to 7-time champion Kevin St. Clair.

Start time is 9:00 am

We are excited to have you join us for this year's Schuylkill Navy Run, a Boathouse Row tradition since 1899 and the oldest continuously run cross-country run in the nation!

The Schuylkill Navy Run is open to all runners - rowers and non-rowers alike!  All friends and guests are welcome to join us for this Thanskgiving Day tradition in Fairmount Park.

All members of Schuylkill Navy clubs should register under the name of the rowing club for which their club is affiliated.  Please review the Rules & Eligibility tab at left for the mapping of programs/schools to clubs and further notes on entry categories.

If you have friends or family attending with you, we'd love their help as volunteers on race day.  It's fun, light, easy work and beats standing around in the cold.  Click HERE to easily sign up.

Race day registration at Malta, 7:30 to 8:30. The race starts at 9:00 am. Entry fee is $30. After Monday, Nov. 20, no online entries accepted; but you can enter the morning of the race for $40.


Each year, 60 to 100 wonderful prizes (many with hand-etched memories to memorialize individuals and organizations for years to come!) are solicited from the competitors and rowing community.  Prizes are awarded to members of the Schuylkill Navy clubs in open, masters, and junior categories; awards are also given to the top male and female guests and top male and female 1st time competitors. These are awarded to runners in the order in which they finished until all are awarded.

Deadline for ordering prizes is Friday, Nov. 17 at 5 pm.

We encourage all runners and competitors to donate a prize.

Click on any of the award amounts below to donate a prize.  We will order something special equivalent to that value from Kelly's Trophies and ensure that your desired inscription (taken from what you add on the link) is included.

If you have an item you would like to donate to the Run, you can bring it to Fairmount Rowing Association at #2 Boathouse Row between 2:00 and 4:00 pm on Wed, Nov. 22.
