WPR e-jawn: July 12th

Some Words from the Management

Our run is ending at Booker' this week! A new destination means we should do a new weird run, too! So brace yourselves for a turn-filled hill-climbing good time tomorrow night.

Don't forget to bring your ID (probably a good thing to bring every week, but especially this week!)

Upcoming Events

WPR at Booker's - Wednesday July 12th

We're having our first ever run to Booker's (5021 Baltimore Ave)!!! Expect a warm welcome with some cool AC, drink and food specials, and lots of your fellow runners celebrating a summer night's run. I want to be sure we're representing en masse, so get your friends out for a run and let's pack the house!

Yards Bridge Run & Happy Hour w/ 5000 Yards Dash - Monday July 17

3rd Monday of the month? That can only mean one thing.....BRIDGE RUN!!! C'mon out for another night of cruisin' and boozin'. As a special incentive we will also be using the night as a pre-registration event for everyone's favorite odd distance race, the 5,000 Yards Dash. If you don't know by now, Yards is moving later this year so this is the last year you'll be able to run this race at the old place, so get on it. $5 (cash please) at the door gets you a bracelet that gets you $4 beers plus one free raffle ticket, other tickets are available for purchase (also cash only). All proceeds from bracelets and raffles will go to Achilles International- Philadelphia Chapter, the official charity of the 5000 Yards dash.

NOTE: Bracelets and raffle tix are cash only. Beers are cash/card. Total distance is around 4.25 miles. All paces, all faces welcome.

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.
