Bottle Shop Revisited for 5th Wednesday

Alon's Ramblings

I know this makes me a huge nerd, but I am excited about the fact that this month has 5 Wednesdays. I love celebrating really monumental things, but in order to balance that out, I think it is only fair to celebrate events that are severely inconsequential. And so, we'll be celebrating the 5th Wednesday in August by heading to the 44 bottle shop again! Don't forget your ID this time (you know who you are)! Who knows, we may also be celebrating some West Philly Runners wins following Tuesday's Regional Running Club Track Meet (see below).

Upcoming Events

Wissahickon Wanderers Regional Running Club Track Meet. Tuesday, August 28. We need to get a 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! Also, I will be personally affronted if you don't participate.

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
