WPR weekly deets: December 1

 

Some Words from the Management

We're headed back to Rebecca and John's place this week after our runs. I'll be there to carry extra gear from the start to the finish so you can be warm when you finish your run. Plus beers (alcoholic and non)!
 
All runs start at Clark Park and end at the Barbers' place (900 block of S 51st between Florence and Warrington)!
COVID Run Rules
1. Get your COVID vaccine!
2. Wear a mask while running or just hanging out if you're unvaccinated 
3. Gather in Clark Park
(in the grass close to the path right near 44th and Baltimore Ave)
4. Continue to keep some distance when we gather at Clark Park and during the run.
5. Decide ahead of time what distance you're running and your preferred speed and try to learn the route. When you arrive, talk with other runners and find a group that matches your distance/pace. Do your best to accommodate people so we can have everyone running in a group.
6. Folks will go out in waves based on distance.
7. As always, don't be an asshole.

Upcoming Run Sports 

The Pizza Mile - December 8, 7pm (after the WPR 2 milers get back)

The Pizza Mile came about in response to a break-in at Pasqually's in 2016 and proved to be an incredible show of support from the community.

This year, we're doing it again, because COVID has proven that you gotta live your life and do fun, dumb things while you have the chance! Plus, we love Pasqually's and we miss being able to show that love after our weekly runs.

This year, we're changing things up to accommodate for COVID. Pasqually's is a small space and they are not comfortable with a ton of us popping in there. Instead, we'll plan to meet in Clark Park where WPR gathers for our weekly Wednesday night runs.

Starting at the NW corner of the park, participants will eat a small slice of pizza and run a lap through the park for. Participants will run four laps and nom four slices of pizza. You can participate with a team, walk, run, or crawl. It's all for fun and continues to benefit Pasqually's, run by some of our favorite people.

First place awards for the men's and women's winner, naturally.

We'll be asking for a $5 contribution from the participants to cover cost of the pizza.

Runs End at Barbers' place
900 block of S 51st St
