This week's run just happens to coincide with the Mayor's Cup Pep Rally that's ending at Dock Street Cannery so that's where we're going to end our runs!
And then this Saturday is the most awesome race of the year, WPR's own 26x1! If you haven't signed up yet, I don't know what you're waiting for! We have two teams so sign up for whichever. We'll probably try to make one "competitive team" and one "giving it all we've got even if all we've got is beer" team (which I will proudly be on).
Marathons are hard. You know what's easier? Running a marathon on a team of 13 runners where you each run a single mile, take a nice relaxing beer break, and then go run one more for good measure.
This year will be the 7th Annual 26x1 Mile Marathon Relay and the 3rd on our home turf, at The Woodlands. We had two teams last year, including the winning team, not that anyone's keeping track of these things.
Sign up today and let's get another two teams together for the best race of the year!
Philly Run Fest is a celebration of all things running and Philadelphia. Presented by Philadelphia Runner, Philly Run Fest was founded by passion for our city and built to bring together the Philadelphia running community.
We're looking to get a nice little team of 30 people so we can get our very own port-a-pot! You can use the discount code WPR19 to get $5 off. Make sure to join the West Philly Runners team!
Registration fees go up at the end of the month so definitely sign up now if you're interested in doing any of the races: 5K, half-marathon relay, or the whole half-marathon!
