WPR weekly deets: July 5


Some Words from the Management

This run is going to look very familiar to everyone but since turnout was lower last week, I'm happy to give everyone another chance to experience these routes and to head to the Bottle Shop.

We're overdue for a new group photo so here's a goodie from this time last year.

Run starts at Clark Park (44th and Baltimore) and ends at Local 44 Bottle Shop (44th and Spruce).

Upcoming Run Events

Woodlands Runner Happy Hours - July 12 and August 16

Join members of The Woodlands and the West Philly Runners for an outdoor happy hour. We are excited to meet the growing community of runners at The Woodlands and celebrate The Woodlands as the best place for walks and runs in the neighborhood. Runner’s Happy Hour is an opportunity to become a Runner Member of The Woodlands.

Assuming this event will be the same as previous years, it's free for active members of The 
$10 Suggested Donation for non-members.

Mayor's Cup - August 12

This is the second-best team race in Philadelphia (after the 26x1 of course). You can register to run the 5K, 10K, or half-marathon trail race or the 5M or 10M road race. All races are timed to end at about the same time so teams then have time to hang out and party on Belmont Plateau. It's a super fun event and you should definitely sign up!

Our team is West Philly Runners and the password is WestPhilly23

The Philly 10K - August 27

Now in year 10, The Philly 10K holds a special place to the tens of thousands of runners who have raced through South Philly and Center City since that inaugural day in September 2014. From the amazing start line atmosphere to the intimacy of the neighborhood course, to the complimentary beer and live music at the finish, The Philly 10K is a one-of-a-kind racing experience in Philadelphia.

Registration for the 10th anniversary of The Philly 10k is open. Spots are limited.

Philly Distance Run - September 17

PDR is among the fastest Half Marathons in the world (6 world records have been broken here) and is known for its super fast and flat course. Whether you are an elite runner, looking for a new PR, or just want to breeze through the City of Brotherly Love with thousands of fellow runners, there is something for everyone at PDR!

Use code WPR23 for 10% off registration for the Philly Distance Run.

Runs end at Local 44 Bottle Shop
(44th and Spruce)
