WPR e-jawn: March 8th

Some Words from the Management

We're in luck once again and will be running in super nice weather tonight. If you are training for a race, you couldn't ask for a better winter than this. Come on out and get one of your training runs in with us... or just run for fun with us... or just come have a beer with us. It's all good!

Runs end at Local 44 Bottle Shop

Upcoming Events

Leprechaun Run - Saturday, March 11

All proceeds of the Leprechaun Run benefit Special Olympics Pennsylvania athletes in Philadelphia. Events like the Leprechaun Run are an integral source of funding for our program that serves nearly 2,000 athletes and for the thousands of potential lives that our programming could touch!

Back on My Feet 5 Miler - Saturday March 25

The Stroehmann Bakeries Back on My Feet 5-Miler is a race to get you prepared for your best Blue Cross Broad Street Run finish yet! If you are an experienced runner, looking to run your first race ever, or would like to improve on your running, set your calendar for Saturday, March 25th at 8:00 AM. Back on My Feet is committed to building a stronger and healthier community. The Stroehmann Bakeries Back on My Feet 5-Miler helps to provide support to our services to improve the self-sufficiency of those experiencing homelessness. All proceeds from the race will benefit the local BoMF Philadelphia Chapter.

Donor Dash - Sunday, April 2nd

The Gift of Life Donor Dash has hosted tens of thousands of participants, commemorating countless donations and lives saved. For 22 spectacular years, teams and individuals have volunteered to run or walk with us to spread the word that donation saves lives.

Bookin for Lookin - Sunday, April 9th, 2017

This charity race event supports an important cause: to raise awareness and funds to help cure blindness! We are supporting two fantastic organizations: Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB) and Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (BCABVI).
Join us and choose your challenge: 8 Miler, 5K, or Kids 1 Mile Fun Run. The 8 Miler features a beautiful, scenic course through Tyler State Park—it will simply take your breath away.

Lenape Survival Challenge - Sunday April 22nd

Early bird registration is open for one of my favorite races and all around fun time. The Lenape Survival Challenge is a 2-person race and getting together three 2-person teams means we could compete for the Tribe challenge, which we won in 2015! It's a 4.5 mile run followed by canoeing with your partner.

WPR 26 x 1 Mile Mararthon Relay - Sunday May 28th

Our very own annual race is back again and you won't want to miss it. Join the WPR team or start your own with friends. Each 13-person team runs two 1-mile laps to complete a team marathon. Teams can have fewer than 13 people and each runner does more than 2 laps. You'll need your own baton (ours is a pair of giant novelty scissors) and a torch for your team's final 0.2 mile victory stretch. During the race, it's a giant party since there's a bunch of down time while your teammates run their miles. All registration fees are being donated to The Woodlands, which is also the location for the race.
