WPR e-jawn: June 13th

Some Words from the Management

I'm so impressed at the awesome running (and personal and professional) things that West Philly Runners accomplish. This past weekend, we had a crew run the Laurel Highlands Team Relay, running 70 miles through the literal mountains including in the middle of the night.

Whether you're scrambling over boulders at midnight or simply managing to get out for a run while balancing all the other things life throws at you, you've got our respect!

This week's run ends at the Local 44 Bottle Shop!!

DELAYED 26x1 Marathon Relay Challenge -  Saturday, July 21

Everyone's favorite team marathon relay is coming up again! Get yourself registered!

All funds raised go to the Woodlands, because they're the best and they're hosting the event again this year!

Mayor's Cup -  Saturday, August 11

Runners from each and every Philadelphia community - fast runners and slow runners, trail runners and road runners, ultra-runners and 5K specialists, competitors and volunteers - coming together to represent the "team" they call their own.
5 Events, held on a single day, with a single start/finish line.  Clubs from all over the city, coming together for competition and socialization.
There are no individual winners.  The top male and female from each club, in each race, will earn points (based on ranking) for their club.  The winning club will be the Mayor's Cup Champion.

The WPR team password is "SimplePleasures" which makes me deeply uncomfortable for some reason.

Run Ends at the Local 44 Bottle Shop
