WPR Sportscast for Wednesday October 1

A few words about this week's run


We're doing something pretty unusual this week and splitting up to participate in separate events. A fair number of runners share my excitement for the new Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk and are opting to run the fun run instead of our usual Wednesday night run. Another large group will wait a little while longer for the boardwalk and stick to the standard run. Paul will lead the regular run group from 45th and Locust and I will be at the Schuylkill Banks at 6pm for the Fun Run. I hope to see everyone afterwards at Pasqually's.

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 $21, 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).
 

YIP Run to Woodland Mansion - Tuesday, October 7

Fall is here and Halloween is around the corner so join the Young Involved Philadelphia Running Club for a run to the historic (and beautiful) Woodlands Cemetery in West Philly. They'll leave from Philadelphia Runner (16th and Sansom) at 6:30PM and run 4 miles, ending at the cemetery for a tour followed by Q & A from the staff at The Woodlands. 

Drinks nearby (probably Local 44 Bottle Shop) afterward.

(these maps are copies and show the wrong ending point, but just head to Walnut and 43rd instead and it'll work out)
