WPR e-jawn for June 1st

Some words from the management

West Philly Runners are everywhere from LA to Equador. Snag a photo of yourself in your WPR shirt and share with us so we can live vicariously through you and your adventures.
 
This week we are running to Clarkville to try out a new spot and to show our support for them after some idiots senselessly threw paint on their restaurant last week. There will be pizza and beer specials so please come out for the run or the 4th loop fun times.

Important Sportsing Updates

Generation Run - June 11th

What's better than running a half marathon? How about running a 5K the day before and getting a bonus finisher metal that bolts on to your half marathon metal? Yeah, that's a thing and it's happening again - the Generation Run 5k on Saturday and the ODDyssey Half-Marathon on Sunday. We have a team for the 5k, naturally, so join up, if you're feeling bold.

ODDyssey Half Marathon Team - June 12

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.

We've got our 30-person team so the party tent is ours and it's going to be along the finish line, in the shade with our own port-a-john. There's no pressure now, just join the team! Poop like a king! Here's the link to register.
