Bike to Run, Take 2

The first Bike to Run was super successful and this Saturday we're going to do it again. This time, the ride is going to be a bit shorter and we're going to have a few distance options for the run to keep it interesting. The route and info will be posted at the site: http://www.westphillyrunners.com/p/b2r.html We're riding to West Fairmount Park's Belmont Plateau. Also, post-B2R brunch at my house for all interested - 40th and Powelton.

Upcoming Sporting Events:

Saturday, 3/3. Bike to Run. So good, I'm writing about it twice. 10am at the EMS Store (34th and Chestnut).

Wednesday, 3/7. Post-run at Heeju's. Run, eat, drink. The usual post-run bash at WPR's house.

Sunday, 4/1. (David) April('s A) Fool(s) Run to The Grey Lodge. Fishtown Beer Runners Commander in Chief leads a parade of mischievous fools north along the (in)famous Frankford Ave to the quite famous Grey Lodge. Sounds like an excuse for mid-day Sunday run and drinks to me.

Saturday, April 21. Cobbs Creek 5K. Sign up now! This is the official West Philly Runners run and I personally challenge you all to a race. Registration is a very affordable $20 and goes to benefit kids' recreational (that means sports) activities in the Cobbs Creek Park. You're basically a bad person if you don't sign up.

Sunday, May 26. ODDyssey Half Marathon. Costumed half marathon in West Philly! Do I really need to say anything more? When you register, on the 2nd screen there is a question "How did you hear about the ODDyssey Half Marathon?" Select "Ambassador" and then select Alon Abramson from the field that shows up. If we get 20 people registered under my name we'll get a post-run tent where we can drink and make merry. If we get 30 we'll get a private porter John!

The Runs...(ending at Fiume)
