If you've risked running outside after 8am in the last few days, you know it's hot AF out there. We don't change our start time all year, which means running in the pitch dark in the winter and in the scorching heat in summer. This week is going to be a scorcher so hydrate like crazy before and after the run. On the flip side, remember your electrolytes so we don't need to take you to the hospital for hyponatremia.
Philly Mayor's Cup and Parks on Tap are joining forces to preview the Belmont Plateau Pop-up Beer Garden which officially opens Friday, July 15th and preview the Philly Mayor's Cup competition! Run clubs are encouraged to run to the Plateau and a "fun-run" of the 5K course will start at 6:30pm. Enjoy post-run beers in the park and best view of the city skyline.
If you haven't heard, Philly's got a traveling beer garden this summer that's stopping in a bunch of local parks, including our own Clark Park. We're taking advantage and we'll be spending our Wednesday night there on July 27th. Mark your calendars, tell your friends, and plan to come out to run and/or hang out. We've got a nice deal where $10 gets you 2 beers and a snack.
