Some Words from the Management

Well I'm still out of town and I imagine the weather is still incredible for glorious running! I hope you all are enjoying the lovely spring conditions that are almost certainly not rainy! This week I bring you another installment of vintage WPR run photos, this time from back 2013!

Run starts at Clark Park (44th and Baltimore) and ends at Local 44 Bottle Shop (44th and Spruce).
