WPR e-jawn: May 29

Some Words from the Management

I didn't have photos from last week's run so here's a fun trail run photo from this weekend! I hope you got out and did some running yourself!

This week's run ends at Pasqually's!

Upcoming Run Sports

Run Fest - Sunday June 2


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!

Woodlands Runner Happy Hour - Wednesday June 5

Join us for the first Woodlands Runner Happy Hours of the season on June 5! We're going to end our run there that day so getting there is easy!

Mount Moriah Runner Clean-up - Saturday June 15

It's been a while since we directly supported the Friends of Mount Moriah Cemetery and all the amazing work they are doing. For those of you who already run there, you know how amazing this place is. For those who don't this is a great time to get out there and explore the space while giving back.

We'll meet on June 15 as part of FMMC's monthly clean-up event. They will have weed whackers and other tools for us to use.

What you'll need:
  • sunscreen
  • sun glasses
  • long pants, ideally

Mayor's Cup - Saturday August 10
