OMG YOU GUYS! It's finally fall-y (autumnal? PSL-appropriate?) outside!
Upcoming Run Jawns
Philadelphia Runner Happy Hour - Tuesday, October 17 5 - 7pm
Whether you need to gear up for the marathon or to juice up your athliesure wardrobe for the fall, Philadelphia Runner can definitely hook you up. I'm not in the business of shamelessly promoting stuff, but PR is a huge part of the Philly running scene and have been great supporters of WPR.
PR is hosting a happy hour in-store event for us on Tuesday, October 17th, 5-7pm. They'll have drinks, food, and in-store specials for anyone attending. Plus, rumor has it that they still have some WPR shirts left so grab your own for race day.
Whether you are training for the Philadelphia Marathon, Half Marathon or just want to join the long run fun, they'll have a fully supported course with pace groups, hydration stops and gels along the way to keep you moving and fueled properly. The 20 and 10 mile runs will both start and end at Lloyd Hall. All are welcome to join!
WPR Turns 7 at Dock Street Cannery! - November 8th
I'll spare everyone a wistful post about how time flies and yada yada and let's just focus on celebrating another awesome year of West Philly running!
The Woodlands Gobble Wobble is back! This individual or team 5K wobble takes you through the historic grounds of William Hamilton's 18th century estate, 19th century cemetery and modern day urban oasis. Outrun The Woodlands Turkey and support the neighborhood's best running spot. All proceeds will go towards improving runner amenities at The Woodlands. The men's and women's first place finishers each win a Thanksgiving turkey or tofurkey from Mariposa Food Co-op!
The Pizza Mile came about in response to an unfortunate crime last year and proved to be an incredible show of support from the community.
This year, we're doing it again...because we're idiots.
Starting at Pasqually's, participants will eat a slice of pizza and run a lap around the block for a total of three laps (which is pretty darn close to a mile) and three slices of pizza. You can participate with a team, walk, run, or crawl. It's all for fun and continues to benefit Pasqually's who are straight up awesome people.
First place awards for the men's and women's winner, naturally.
We'll be asking for a contribution from the participants to cover cost of the pizza, which should be around $5.
