Following the leadership of Fishtown Beer Runners and other groups, we're going to pause our group runs until further notice.
We run through rain, shine, and thundersnow, but those are all things that test us as individuals without any real risk to our community. Covid-19 is all together different. The virus is spreading through individuals who don't know they are infected and that's a scary state of things. I don't believe we can gather safely without putting people at risk of exposure, and ending our runs at a bar is out of the question.
Thankfully, we're not at the point where the government is restricting movement, so I encourage everyone to get out and practice social distancing with individual or small group runs.
Please use this group to post about your runs, share your angst, and generally let us know how you're getting along in these strange times.
If you are looking for inspiration, remember that www.westphillyrunners.com has all the old routes we've done over the last 9.5 years.
We'll be back together in no time but until then please be safe, wash your hands, and don't minimize the seriousness of this situation. Our individual actions really matter for our family and friends so we all have a responsibility to do our part.
