WPR Run Update September 19

Alon's Musings


When Amy from our Ragnar team mused that she should cover herself up with pillows if she plans on leaving the house, I realized that three fairly serious injuries in 2 weeks is not actually normal. Heal up quickly, Duc and Julie and remember that the "fourth loop" is a completely respectable option and I hope we see you at the bar until we see you on the streets!

Upcoming Shenanigans



Ragnar Relay PA. October 5-6. The WPR team is looking for one or two runners for our Ragnar team! We have had some last minute injuries and need some fresh blood to join our team of pure awesomeness. Give me a shout if you're interested in joining us and I'll fill you in on the details!

Running for Answers WPR Team. Sunday October 21. I would love to put together a team to face off against the other local clubs that are participating. (Fishtown Beer Runners are already registered). Our team is 'West Philly Runners', naturally.

  • Let's kick some Fishtown Beer Runners butt.



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 (20th and 27th) starting at the Valley Green Inn at 6:30pm! We had great turnouts at each of the Spring runs and anyone who ran will tell you that they were amazing, stupidly challenging, and free!

Philadelphia Runner Trail 5K, Sunday September 23rd 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.
