WPR weekly deets: May 8


Some Words from the Management

Another hot one for this week but that won't slow us down! We're heading back to Fiume for the first time in a long time so I hope you join the fun.

Run starts at Clark Park (44th and Baltimore) and ends at Fiume (45th and Locust).

Upcoming Events

WPR 26x1 Marathon Relay - May 11

The best race of the year is coming up! Marathons are hard but they're easier when taken one mile at a time with you and 12 friends splitting the distance! It's a great time with 100% of funds going straight to the Woodlands to keep that place awesome and accessible for runners!

Powel 5K - May 18 at 9am

Join us at Drexel's Vidas Athletic Complex, at 43rd & Powelton Ave., on Saturday, May 18 at 9:00AM for the 2nd Annual Powel 5K & Family Fun Day! Please arrive by 8:30AM for registration and bib/t-shirt distribution. There will also be food and family-friendly activities to follow the runs!

Philly 10K - August 25

The 11th annual Philly 10K marks the most significant updates to the race since we launched in 2014. In addition to the only opportunity of the year to run through the heart of South Philly on fully closed streets, this year we are adding The Philly Mile and a Kids Dash (what can we say? The founders both had babies and have grown soft) as part of the Diadora Kickoff Party festivities at FDR Park.

Use code WPR24 for a discount and also make sure to join the West Philly Runners team!

Philadelphia Distance Run - September 15

The PDR was founded in 1978 and remains one of the world’s premier Half Marathons. Set on the third Sunday in September, the PDR has long been one of the great fall tune up races going into marathon season and a perfect destination race for a weekend spent in the city of Brotherly Love.

Run ends at Fiume
(45th and Locust)

6 Miler
