WPR e-jawn: June 7

Some Words from the Management

Every time you think it's going to be super hot summer weather, this perpetual spring pops its head back up. This week is no exception which means that we've got another night of perfect running weather ahead of us. Unfortunately, it also means that hanging out outside afterwards is probably not going to be awesome so we'll postpone our planned run to the PHS Pop-up Garden til next week. We're heading back to Pasqually's after a long hiatus.

Meanwhile, three of Philly's biggest local races are coming up and you should get yourself registered on the WPR team for all of them!! First up, ODDyssey this weekend. We have 23 people on our team, enough for a tent, but still short of our port-a-john. We'll be stocking the tent with some of our own beers and there will be beer afterwards at the official beer tent as well. Don't forget your costumes!

Upcoming Events

ODDyssey Half Marathon - Sunday June 11

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! More importantly, once we get 30 people, we'll earn a port-a-pot, which will be glorious!

We have 23 people on our team so far!

Mayor's Cup - Saturday August 12

Come join us on the plateau for a day of hanging with all the runners in Philadelphia! There will be food and drink and music and lots of sun. Also a tent, and probably a table. Maybe a kiddie pool full of ice? There will be running but you don't have to run to come participate. The race will need non-running volunteers and Kyle will need his group of super cooling providers of coolness to runners. And you can just come hang.

The Philly 10K - Sunday August 27

The Philly 10K is inspired by our city’s passion for community and running.
The race is a 6.2 mile loop through South Philly and Center City, passing through two of Philadelphia’s most vibrant corridors (13th Street + East Passyunk) and past one of its most historic (Italian Market) along with 76 city blocks that most of us have walked, shopped, biked, BBQ’d, slept, or front stoop’d on at some point in our lives.

Put on by a group of proud and dedicated Philadelphians since 2014, we celebrate the history, diversity, and unique neighborhood fabric that makes each of us proud to call this city home.

Run Ends at Pasqually's
43rd and Walnut
