Yeah, you may say we're a bunch of weirdos, but we know it - we're runners, it's obvious.
We're venturing north and dipping our toes into West Fairmount Park this week. The sun is setting earlier so be prepared to be running in the dark. It's safe, but it's good to be visible. We'll be at Local 44 Bottle Shop afterwards.
Next week, we're going to be changing things up in order to celebrate the opening of the Schuylkill Banks boardwalk. More details below.
Upcoming run sports
Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk Pre-Opening Fun Run - Wednesday, October 1
WPR will be having our usual Wednesday night run at this event instead of meeting at 45th and Locust!! I ordered a few extra tickets in case the event sold out and it has, so please let me know if you need tickets (they are $23, but I'll help cover your cost if you can't afford it).
Schuylkill Banks is celebrating the new AMAZING boardwalk that extends the trail south from Locust to the South Street Bridge by holding a pre-opening fun run (sponsored by our friends at PHILADELPHIA RUNNER, naturally).
Wissahickon Fall Trail Race Series - Thursday, September 25
This Thursday is your last chance to run the Wissahickon Fall Trail Series. Start time for all races is 6:30 at the Valley Green Inn. The entry fee is...absolutely free. These races are open to all comers regardless of age and ability.
