Post-BSR Picnic in FDR Park 10:45am Sunday May 7

Hi all. Once again we will be having a Philly Runners totally awesome and ridiculously gourmet post-Broad Street picnic and barbecue on Sunday, May 7.

For those of you who have been around for some time, you can skip directly to the part where you RSVP.

What: Philly Runners totally awesome and ridiculously gourmet post-Broad Street picnic and barbecue featuring organic hamburgers and craft beer.

When: Sunday, May 7. Roughly 10:45am. The race starts at 8:00am. With any luck, I'll run it in 90 minutes, cross the finish line, walk back up to FDR Park, unload my car, throw some burgers on the grill. If you're at the picnic site before me, stick around and you'll be able to help me set up when I get there.

Where: FDR Park, about 1/3 mile north of the finish line.
To get to the picnic from the finish line, walk north on Broad Street from the naval yard. Cross under I-95, keep headed a bit further north until you come upon a small access driveway down to FDR park. Go down the driveway into the park. Take a left at the bottom of the driveway and follow the access road around until it is parallel to the highway. On a nice day, we'll be on the field on the right. On a rainy day, we'll be under the highway.
Please note: In the past folks have had difficulty finding the picnic. If you think you won't be able to figure out how to get to the picnic after the race, print out the map from the website and take it with you in a zip-lock bag or throw it in your gear check bag.
Map: http://www.phillyrunners.org/bsr.html

Who: You! All Philly Runners, whether or not you are running Broad Street. Your significant other, friends, kids and dogs are also welcome. Pretty much anybody reading this who wants to come hang out with a bunch of folks who just ran 10 miles and eat organic hamburgers and craft beer with us is welcome. Just let me know you're coming (more on that below).

Why: Because you just ran 10 miles and you're hungry and you don't know anywhere else within walking distance of the finish line serving organic hamburgers, lentil salad or an Iranian rice dish and craft beer at 10:45 in the morning. Or perhaps you didn't just run 10 miles, but you want to come celebrate with those who did, and, while you're at it, you might as well eat some organic hamburgers and craft beer at 10:45am.

How much: A $15 contribution to the cost of this gourmet picnic will be very much appreciated.

Bring: Yourself and any other cool people you want to hang with. You do not need to bring anything else. If you have some dietary restriction you think I will not be able to accommodate or you have some truly unique food you would like to share with others, that's cool, but please do not feel obligated to bring anything. I plan the purchase of food on the assumption that nobody is bringing anything else.

RSVP:By Friday, May 5 at Noon. RSVP by posting here. Please do not RSVP by emailing me, telling me in person, fax, phone, text, Facebook or any other way you can think of. This is where I count how many people are coming and it's much easier when everybody is in the same place. When RSVP'ing, please indicate how many people will be in your party and if you have any veggies/vegans or other dietary restrictions. I am willing/able to accommodate any reasonable request provided you give me a heads-up.

Once again, Andrew is providing craft beer, cider and Pinot Noir. There will be 10 varieties of IPAs on hand!

Looking forward to seeing a bunch of hungry runners on Sunday, May 7!
