We are SUPER excited to finally reveal our 2016/2017 winter hoodies! These are our "Franklin Jawns," designed by Andrew Lyons (Jon's incredibly talented in-house designer/artist/little brother). As always, these designs are 100% original pieces of art, printed locally in South Philly by Awesome Dudes Printing on high quality full-zip hoodies from Bella + Canvas.
We are so proud to be able to give you a special, limited item that you can wear while running/strutting/walking around town, or hanging at your favorite bar, or on the couch watching Netflix. As always, we spend countless hours (and more design revisions than any reasonable human would tolerate) to give you something that is hip, functional, original, and completely "Philly."
Our winter apparel (along with a bonus New Balance Tempo Running Singlet) are in production as we speak. Stay tuned to our social media channels for release party info and availability at Philadelphia Runner stores in November...
Waking up this morning you might have noticed a slight chill in the air, and a beautiful fog enveloping our fair city. Quite simply, this might have been THE MOST GORGEOUS MORNING EVER. Well, Philly runners aren't the type of people to sit around and waste an opportunity to explore the dream world that surrounds them.
Here are our 5 favorite Instagram pics that'll make you kick yourself for not getting out there today...

Mark your calendars, runners. THIS MONDAY, October 17th, we're kicking off The Ghost Race with an event that is sure to help achieve the ultimate PR...
We are super excited that Lululemon invited us to kick off The Ghost Race, a FREE virtual 8k in collaboration with Strava! The course will be open 24/7 from October 17th - 23rd and runs along the Schuylkill Banks, ending with a massive wrap-party on the 27th. (more about that later...) Of course, by involving some of Philly's most well-known and notorious characters in the running scene, we knew we had to step up our game.
Got plans for tomorrow night? Great! CANCEL THEM, because the West Philly Runners are hosting a race that will blow your freaking mind (and gut). Philadelphia, we introduce to you THE PIZZA MILE! Oh yes, 3 glorious 1/3-mile laps + 3 glorious slices of pizza. What on earth would possess someone to take on such a feat?
