Important Sportsing Updates

Bridge Running & Happy Hour Training Run - March 29th

Hey! WPR is taking part in the ODDyssey Half Marathon Bridge Running (and Happy Hour, obvs) Training Program. This means that WPRs can come out and have their first drink on the house! Mark your calendars for March 29th.
It's an even better deal if you do the whole 6 week training plan since it's only $20 for the whole shebang with the code WestPhillyRunners - 6 bridge runs, 6 free beers, free whiskey glass, and all proceeds go to charities.

ODDyssey Half Marathon Team

We've teamed up with the South Philly Striders to form a power team named West Philly and South Philly Run in Stride for this year's ODDyssey Half Marathon. I would argue that the ODDyssey is Philly's best half marathon with a fun course and a costume contest. It's also a great chance for us to celebrate as a club. Once we get 20 people on our team, we're going to get a party tent and we're going to party. We want you in our tent! Join the team! Here's the link to register.
