This photo above was after our run and this is only the two mile group! We've been growing week by week and hope you'll join us soon. This week is a good opportunity to come out and really get the full WPR experience. We'll end our run at Parks on Tap at the Water Works right behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Remember to bring your ID and some form of payment and hang out for a drink.
COVID Run Rules 1. Wear a mask. This isn't optional.* 2. Wear your mask while running. Also not optional. 3. Gather in Clark Park (in the grass close to the path right near 44th and Baltimore Ave) 4. Keep 6' apart when we gather at Clark Park and during the run. It may be easiest to run staggered so that you can take up less space. 5. Decide ahead of time what distance you're running and your preferred speed and try to learn the route. When you arrive, talk with other runners and find a group that matches your distance/pace. Do your best to accommodate people so we can have everyone running in a group. 6. Folks will go out in waves based on pace, fastest to slowest. 7. Run on the road as much as possible, on the left side against the flow of traffic. This is to be kind to pedestrians on the sidewalk by giving them plenty of passing space. 8. As always, don't be an asshole.
* If you don't have a mask and need one, please let me know and I'll get you one.
All runs start at Clark Park and end at Parks on Tap at the Water Works!
Friday Morning Run - end your run at 7am at the Woodlands gate
We started an official morning run deal! The idea is you go do your run on your own, preferably with some part of your run in the Woodlands, and we'll all meet up at the end of our runs at 7am at the Woodland front gate for a socially distanced celebration (distanced high fives?).
The goal is to have more runners at the Woodlands in the morning so we know there's a strong group there, even if we're all running solo or in small groups.
Consider stashing a thermos of coffee at the gate for an extra excuse to stick around and chat for a bit.
