In case you were wondering, we're gonna have a REALLY really really good time this Sunday.
Raffles, super rare brews by Southern Tier, and that really amazing feeling that occurs when you sip a beer after you just ran 10 freaking miles.
Fun starts at Noon(ish)
See you there!
Yesterday, one of the greatest musicians of all time passed. Heartbroken, members of RUN215 and Philadelphia Runner decided to celebrate the life of Prince the best way we knew how....by rallying 100 or so runners, a massive sound system, and nonstop Prince jams, and taking them on a 5 mile run throughout the city.
ABC, KYW, and CBS even stopped by to document some of the action:
Here's what you missed if you weren't there.
REGISTRATION FOR SCHUYLKILL RIVER TRAIL WATCH TRAINING SESSION #1 (on April 27, 2016) OPENS TODAY AT 2:00PM.
LIMITED TO THE FIRST 50 PEOPLE.
CHECK SRTWATCH.COM FOR REGISTRATION INFORMATION.
Happy Friday, Philly Running Community!
Here's a breakdown of some cool stuff that is happening in our great City.
TRAIL MARKERS ARE BEING IMPLEMENTED ON THE SCHUYLKILL RIVER TRAIL!
Indeed, implementation of emergency markers on the SRT have begun, starting with The Schuylkill Banks. These yellow and black markers (pictured) are being placed anywhere from 250ft+ along the trail. If you are in an emergency, use the SR-### location on the sticker when dialing 911. Emergency responders have integrated the codes into their GPS systems.
If you pass by a member of the Schuylkill River Development Corporation, or a member of the Philly Police Department, be sure to give a smile and a wave for all of their hard work in getting these placed!
IT'S LOVE RUN HALF MARATHON WEEKEND!
RUN215 will be on site at the expo tonight and tomorrow, so make sure you say hi and spread those positive vibes if you see one of us, or anyone sporting the colors!
We also have an official Love Run Team and Tent! Friends, family, and supporters are encouraged to hang with us as we tear up 13.1 miles on Sunday morning. Bring your loudest cheering voices, grab those pots and pans, and let's raise some hell!
