A Cascade of Running Events

Small Talk

I'm not going to take up too much real estate talking nonsense this week. There are a bunch of awesome events coming up and I want to focus on those.

Upcoming Stuff


Track Meets
Wissahickon Wanderers are putting on two track meets! The first is Tuesday, August 21 and will be raising money for Back on My Feet. The second is the following week, Tuesday, August 28 and is a Regional Running Club competition! We need to get a nice group together for the race on August 28 to represent. WPR is made up of some amazing runners and I think we should flaunt our  amazitude. Check out the website and register. There's a cookout following both meets as an added bonus!

Trail Races
Wissahickon Wanderers and Philadelphia Runner are each having trail race series this Fall!

Wissahickon Wanderers Fall Trail Series will take place Thursday Evenings in September (6th, 13th, 20th and 27th) starting at the Valley Green Inn at 6:30pm! As many of us will tell you who ran the series in the Spring, these races are amazing, stupidly challenging, and free!

Philadelphia Runner Trail Race Series will be more traditional races that just happen to be on breathtaking trails. These are also going to be a lot less treacherous than the Wissahickon Wanderers events. The events aren't free, but they're not going to break the bank either at $20 a piece. Check out the website for registration details.

  • September 23rd - 5K
  • October 21st - 4 Mile
  • November 25th - Turkey Trail 10K or 5K
Other Random Races
Totally Awesome 80s Run. Saturday August 25th. This run is really a big 80s-themed party taking place in South Jersey with their local running club and organized by Ken at Philadelphia Runner.
