WPR e-jawn: July 4th

Some Words from the Management

I wanted to devote this week's email photo to some old friends who have left Philly and reconnected in Ecuador this week. Having declared their independence from the US, the South American chapter of WPR has grown strong indeed.

This week's run ends at Andrew's place between 47th and 48th on Chester! 
We will have some BBQ foods and beers and there's a nearby place to buy brews if you want to contribute after the run.

Upcoming Sports Jawns

Woodlands Happy Hour - Wednesday July 11, 7pm

Join us for a brew or two at the Hamilton Mansion after the WPR run for the June Runner Happy Hours and help celebrate our community of runners. A selection of craft beers has been generously provided by Yards Brewing Co.

This month's event will have an added bonus event. Esther from P.E.T. Core Fitness will be leading a body weight workout at the Woodlands following the 2 mile run. The workout will be around 30 minutes and is free!

The Runner's Happy Hour is FREE for members
$10 suggested donation for non-members

DELAYED 26x1 Marathon Relay Challenge -  Saturday, July 21

Everyone's favorite team marathon relay is coming up again! Get yourself registered!

All funds raised go to the Woodlands, because they're the best and they're hosting the event again this year!

Mayor's Cup -  Saturday, August 11

Runners from each and every Philadelphia community - fast runners and slow runners, trail runners and road runners, ultra-runners and 5K specialists, competitors and volunteers - coming together to represent the "team" they call their own.
5 Events, held on a single day, with a single start/finish line.  Clubs from all over the city, coming together for competition and socialization.
There are no individual winners.  The top male and female from each club, in each race, will earn points (based on ranking) for their club.  The winning club will be the Mayor's Cup Champion.

The WPR team password is "SimplePleasures" which makes me deeply uncomfortable for some reason.

Run Ends at Andrew's House
Between 47th and 48th on Chester
