Upcoming Run Sports

Bridge Run and Happy Hour - Tuesday, April 23 7pm

I totally shit the bed on this one and forgot to let you all know early on about this year's Bridge Running and Happy Hour training program. Now we're a few weeks into it, but it's still not too late to mark your calendars for April 23 when WPR is the host organization. WPR runners run for free that night!

We'll meet at 6th and Race at 6:45pm (run starts at 7pm), run over the bridge, and then end up at Dave and Busters for some brews and to mingle with other cool runner peeps. Come join us!!

Broad Street Run Afterparty - Sunday May 5

After the party, it's the afterparty at Alon and Arwin's place. Run Broad Street, go hang out down in FDR Park with Philadelphia Runner, head home, shower off, and then come show off your medal and tell a bunch of people who ACTUALLY want to hear about your run about how great/terrible/never again it was!

Where: 5019 Hazel Ave
When: 12 - 4pm

7th Annual WPR 26x1 Mile Marathon Relay - Saturday May 18th

Marathons are hard. You know what's easier? Running a marathon on a team of 13 runners where you each run a single mile, take a nice relaxing beer break, and then go run one more for good measure.

This year will be the 7th Annual 26x1 Mile Marathon Relay and the 3rd on our home turf, at The Woodlands. We had two teams last year, including the winning team, not that anyone's keeping track of these things.

Sign up today and let's get another two teams together for the best race of the year!

Run Fest - Sunday June 2

Philly Run Fest is a celebration of all things running and Philadelphia. Presented by Philadelphia Runner, Philly Run Fest was founded by passion for our city and built to bring together the Philadelphia running community.

We're looking to get a nice little team of 30 people so we can get our very own port-a-pot! You can use the discount code WPR19 to get $5 off. Make sure to join the West Philly Runners team!

Registration fees go up at the end of the month so definitely sign up now if you're interested in doing any of the races: 5K, half-marathon relay, or the whole half-marathon!

Runs End at Pasqually's
