WPR Sportscast for Wednesday September 17th

A few words about the run

 

Once again, the weather gods are smiling down on us. If what they say about this coming winter is true, we better soak up this fantastic weather while we can. Run ends at Pasqually's where the beer is cold and the pizza hits the spot.

The amazing weather will continue into Saturday for the Cobbs Creek 5K. You might even see some wildlife like I did when I was out there in the Spring. Check out the details below.

Cobbs Creek 5K - Saturday September 20

The 4th Annual Cobbs Creek 5K, the year's best 5K, is coming up on September 20th. Registration is open so get up on it.

Registration is free for kids under 18 if they have a group of 5 or more. If you know any youth groups that we should promote the event to, please let me know.

Run to Work Day - Friday September 19

Join a bunch of us from WPR for Run to Work Day. We haven't figured out details quite yet, but we may try to 'runpool' through West Philly. Use the hashtag #RuntoWorkPHL for your pics for a chance to win a year's supply of running shoes.

Wissahickon Fall Trail Race Series - Thursdays in September

The Wissahickon Fall Trail Series will be held Thursdays in September starting Sep 4. Start time for all races is 6:30 at the Valley Green Inn. The entry fee is the same great price....absolutely free. These races are open to all comers regardless of age and ability.
