Philly Runners -- Welcome


Welcome to our Philly Runners forum. This message board is provided for running-related discussion in the Philadelphia area and around the world. You are welcome to start your own topics and reply to others.
You don't need to post only running-related items, but commercial interests don't have a business being on here (unless you're trying to sell your used treadmill, for example). We don't have "rules" but will try to use our best good-faith judgment. 

Please do not list the full name of anybody other than yourself. Please use first names only or first name plus first letter of last name. Messages that include full names will be deleted. 

When starting a topic for an event with a specific date, please list the date of the event in the subject line. For example: "Media 5 Miler Friday June 17".

Some posts will be deleted after a while due to space limitations. Have fun, and please be sure to visit our main website for more information on our club and more running-related information.

5K Run/ 2 Mile Walk


Don’t miss out on this wonderful Thanksgiving Day family tradition. All ages are invited for fun and fitness before consuming thousands of calories at the big feast. The Gobble Wobble 5K run course winds through a beautiful, quiet residential area of Abington Township with rolling hills, while the 2 mile walk is a predominantly flat course. The race will finish Olympic style on a beautiful new track. All proceeds of this event benefit the Abington Y Financial Assistance program, insuring that no one is turned away from valuable YMCA services due to inability to pay.
