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.

Extreme cold for Saturday 1/6 run

Hi Philly Runners! As many of you are aware, this Saturday will be one of our coldest runs in years. The current forecast is for 8 degree temperatures at 9am, with 14 mph WNW winds. Be sure to check out these useful links:

Also, Yaktrax or "shoes with screws" are recommended. A good portion of the path was plowed on the Kelly Drive side on Thursday evening, but we should expect some areas may not be plowed by Saturday morning. Snowy and icy conditions on at least parts of the trail are likely. Bundle up and I'll see you Saturday morning!

Your Next Race & Date: Caesar Rodney Hilly Half Marathon, 3/18/18

Your Favorite Running Shoe: Liking Mizuno Wave Creation

Re: Extreme cold for Saturday 1/6 run - An Ignoble Challenge!!!!

However, I will add, that our beloved founder Kevin G. is fond of aspiring to "have more runners than degrees" I have too have found that amusing and hope everyone will consider dressing warmly, joining us for the run and trying to achieve this ignoble distinction!

See you on the Drive.
