I'm excited to add a new drinking spot for West Philly Runners this week! We're going to the recently opened Trolley Car Station right at the trolley portal at 40th and Baltimore. We're excited that these guys are around and want to make sure they get some West Philly love.
This 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 West Philly Turkey and support the neighborhood's best running spot. The race takes place on the paved road within The Woodlands Cemetery, with the start and finish line near the Hamilton Mansion.
REGISTRATION: Members: $20 (with coupon) Non-Members: $40 With Membership Add On: $55
All proceeds will go towards improving runner amenities at The Woodlands.
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.
Run Ends at Trolley Car Station 40th and Baltimore
