Once in a while we come up with a run idea that is truly unique and that we can really be proud of. #BeatTheCommute is all of that and more. It's an opportunity to turn running into something bigger. Can we truly run faster than a car commuter? Whether or not we beat the car, I hope it gets people thinking about why it is that it's even possible to outrun a car at rush hour. And more importantly, I hope you all make it out and try your best to #BeatTheCommute.
Between the costume contest, beer tent, and the awesome course through Fairmount Park, this is (in my humble opinion) the best half-marathon in Philly. Register under our team when it asks how you found out. If we get a group of 10 together, we'll have our own party tent that we will stock with beer and a blowup monkey doll. The race is likely to sell out (it's small - only 4000 runners) so register soon.
