As part of the Flyers Hall of Fame celebration, Flyers Charities and Flyers Alumni are hosting a special "Orange & Black" alumni game at Wells Fargo Center on Monday, November 15, with all proceeds going to Flyers Charities and Flyers Alumni's charitable efforts. This alumni game is part of the Flyers Hall of Fame celebration and will take place the day before Flyers legends Paul Holmgren and Rick Tocchet are inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame.
Flyers Alumni players will be split into two teams, "Team Holmgren" and "Team Tocchet," and the game will feature alumni both on the ice and on the bench from every decade of the Flyers organization, including Tocchet, Holmgren, Eric Lindros, John LeClair, Mark Howe, and more.
Returning for its third year, the 2021 Gritty 5K is happening in person and virtually on November 6! Whether you plan to join us at the Wells Fargo Center or you are running in your neighborhood, put on your best orange fur!
Registration is OPEN NOW. As the race approaches prices will increase, so register early. All runners will receive a long sleeve tech shirt, finisher's medal and a shot at fun prizes.
If you are running or walking the 3.1 miles at the Wells Fargo Center on November 6, the fun starts at 7:00 a.m. with a stretch, followed by opening ceremonies and the start of the race at 7:30. After everyone crosses the finish line, prizes will be awarded for "Best in Fur," and more during closing ceremonies. While you wait, you can enjoy FanFest with games, shopping, giveaways, and more.
If you are running the Gritty 5K from across the pond, in the outback, or in your driveway, you can submit your times beginning on Thursday, November 4 until Sunday, November 7 here. Make sure to tag @FlyersCharities in your photos on social to be in the ~running~ for our virtual awards!
