What the El - Saturday October 5th
What is WHAT THE EL?! Simply put: We take the El, we eat donuts, we run, we traverse Philly, we eat again, we take the El again.
Date: Sat, October 5th at 7am
Rain Date: Sun, October 6th at 7am
Wait? Why are we running the length of the Market-Frankford Elevated Train Line? Well, I (Hi, I'm Chris, the run organizer) live in West Philly and my brother (Andrew) used to live in Fishtown (he now lives in Paris...). And taking the El one day, we thought it would be interesting to run the whole thing. And it turns out, the run is exactly 13.1 miles. Could there be a greater sign that this was a route that needed to be run? So, we got a group together (ok, really it was just Trevor) and the three of us ran the course for the first time in May 2017. It was damn hot. So we did it again with some more friends in October. That was a much better time to run. So we ran again in October 2018. Now it is time for the 4th What the El?! run.
