Did you know we've got an intrepid crew that meets on Monday evenings (5:30pm) at Penn Park (by the picnic tables between the tennis courts and soccer fields) and runs repeat 1000s!? It seriously helps in winter that it's a well-lit area and is always free of snow and ice. But it also seriously helps you get faster, if that's something you're after.
And we'll also be doing our normal weekly Wednesday night run this week, of course. Same place and time. Plus warmer winter weather will make for some funner post-run hangs.
All runs start and end at Clark Park (NE corner)!
COVID Run Rules 1. Get your COVID vaccine! 2. Wear a mask while running or just hanging out if you're unvaccinated 3. Gather in Clark Park (in the grass close to the path right near 44th and Baltimore Ave) 4. Continue to keep some distance when we gather at Clark Park and during the run. 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 distance. 7. As always, don't be an asshole.
West Philly Runners has a team for the Love Run Half Marathon and we want you (yes YOU!) to join us! At last count, there are 22 runners on our team so we've now got our choice of our own port-a-potty or tent (vote here). There's still time to join our team and enjoy our company and our...facilities on race day!
