WPR e-jawn: July 5th

Some Words from the Management

Whether it's trail yogging with celebrities (like Peter Sagal and Kyle Cassidy shown above) or tromping around garden cemeteries, it's hard to predict where this great sport of running will take you. Except I can tell you that this week it'll take you to Pasqually's and next week to Booker's.

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!

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
