WPR weekly deets: July 17


Some Words from the Management

We're back at it with the ridiculous heat and because of that we're just redoing last week's runs and ending up at the Bottle Shop. It's the ideal spot when we're extra gross sweaty messes.

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

Upcoming Events

Philly Mayor's Cup  - August 10

The Philly Mayor's Cup is a celebration of the Philadelphia running community, held on historic Belmot Plateau. This one is only about the team: all runners compete for their chosen local running club and there are no individual winners.

One day, dozens of clubs, five races: 5K, 5 Mile, 10K, 10 Mile, and a Half Marathon.

May the fastest* team win!

*The team that has the most fun also wins. So does the one that raises the most for charity. 

Use code "WestPhilly24" to join our team!

Philly 10K - August 25

The 11th annual Philly 10K marks the most significant updates to the race since we launched in 2014. In addition to the only opportunity of the year to run through the heart of South Philly on fully closed streets, this year we are adding The Philly Mile and a Kids Dash (what can we say? The founders both had babies and have grown soft) as part of the Diadora Kickoff Party festivities at FDR Park.

Use code WPR24 for a discount and also make sure to join the West Philly Runners team!

Philadelphia Distance Run - September 15

The PDR was founded in 1978 and remains one of the world’s premier Half Marathons. Set on the third Sunday in September, the PDR has long been one of the great fall tune up races going into marathon season and a perfect destination race for a weekend spent in the city of Brotherly Love.

Run ends at Local 44 Bottle Shop
(44th and Spruce)
