The 2018 Flyers Charity Classic — a city-wide event incorporating a 5k walk/run through the Navy Yard, a 10-mile family bike ride through the Navy Yard and FDR Park, and two bike rides – a 50K and a 100K — is underway today.
It spans Broad Street, through historic Valley Forge Park leading back through MLK Drive to the Wells Fargo Center Complex.
This year marks the second annual edition of the summertime event in which thousands of participants bicycle, run or walk to raise money for worthy causes in the Delaware Valley.
The Toyota Flyers Charity Classic grew out of the Flyers Charities 5k run/walk, which proved very popular over a five-year period.
