About The University City 5K Run (or Walk)!

The University City 5K Run (or Walk)! is a Running race in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania consisting of a 5K.

The University City 5K Run, formerly known as the Pipino Run, was founded by the Nicholas P. Pipino Memorial Foundation. The Foundation was created by family, friends, and volunteers seeking to stop senseless acts of violence and to preserve their fond memories of Nick Pipino.

Nick was a Drexel University student who was fatally stabbed outside Cavanaugh's Restaurant & Bar on December 19, 1992, where he worked part-time as a bartender while pursuing an undergraduate degree at Drexel. In keeping with Nick's love for the outdoors, the Run has been organized since 1993 as a way to make something positive come out of Nick's untimely death.
